Glittered Poinsettia


Welcome to the weekend! I kind of feel like my weekend started yesterday. Hubby took off work and we had a little road trip. Got to see the munchkins and what is better than that? Not much. :-)

The SCSCCSept14 Fan Club Challenge challenge (Christmas) is going on and I need to get on making some Christmas cards so this is my entry. The challenge is BINGO. I love that kind of challenge so you can choose the one you want to create. I chose red, image,  and sentiment. I am counting my poinsettia as my image.

I am using Elizabeth Craft silk microfine glitter in True Red on Elizabeth Craft transparent double sided adhesive paper.  I love both those items and the glitter is not coming off and getting everywhere. Plus, you wouldn't believe the sparkle irl. There are videos out there to show you how to use it. I was shown when I went to one of the scrapbook stores in Atlanta. Other than that, I just added a piece of designer paper, a large gem, and a sentiment. The dp is MME Christmas paper pad and the sentiment is from the JustRite Merry & Bright set. I'm using a Sizzix Bigz Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Glad you had a nice trip yesterday.
