Thank you to all who shared your blog with us, I love being inspired by you!

Challenge #1 "Let it Sparkle"
create a project and add anything that shines or sparkles... glitter, jewels, tinsel etc...
Challenge runs from Tuesday to Sunday at midnight, then my design team will choose their top 3 favorites.

Yesterday's card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge I used rosettes (see that card -HERE)... and guess what, I'm still making them... I told you they were addictive... have you made a rosette yet? I love them!
My card today has a vintage flair, and I love it especially the background paper which is from last years DCWV Christmas combo stack (180 sheets) as well as the brown checkered paper.
Here is where I added my "sparkle" this is a fun silver metal brad (the photo looks a bit off), I purchased it years ago from Oriental Trading (item no longer in stalk :(
I stamped using the phrase "A Cup of Good Cheer" right on that beautiful vintage looking paper. Stamp is from my "Gingerbread Holiday" stamp set available -HERE
~Design Team Inspiration~
I love to see non-traditional colors for these Christmas trees, pink! So beautiful.

Each of these snowmen are so adorable, I love the embossed backgrounds.

I love this sign post image, it goes so well with the stamped image

The border of this card is so fun with the swirls and the shiny embossed background is so cool looking!
