Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge, Papertake Weekly Challenge



I'm really getting my Christmas cards made by doing these challenges. What a relief it will be to have them made before it is time for all of them to be put in the mail. I wish the sparkle would show in this blog photo like it did when I had it in my photo software. Shows up better in my Splitcoaststampers gallery. Have a tip, anyone? It's a shame because this card is really all aglow.  I'm using a sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge  #20 to make my card (shown below).



I also am entering my card into the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is Sparkly and Bright. I think my card qualifies with all the gold embossing and glittery ribbon.

Recipe: Stamp: Penny Black Xmas Light
            Stampin'Up! Holiday Happiness (sentiment)
Paper: Stampin'Up! Night of Navy, PTI white cardstock
Accessories: Cuttlebug textile embossing folder, Versa Mark Dazzle-Frost, gold embossing glitter, Stampin'Up! oval punch, miscellaneous glitter sheer ribbon

What a gorgeous and sparkly card, Benzi!! Your gold embossing is delightful. I think it looks just super in your photo--it must be blinding in real life LOL!!! You used the WMSC beautifully. I used that sketch this week, too :)

The gold with the navy looks like pure elegance on this card! I love the C&S design, and even your bow has gold shimmer! I love using navy for holiday cards, and instead of pairing it with silver next time, I'll try gold! This looks gorgeous!!
