That Sparkle in you Eyes...

Oh, this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is extra exciting!!! Its all about things that sparkle!! What girl doesn't like things that sparkle? I know i do!

You know, when i sit down and try to visualize what i want to make each week, i have to say it is very rare it comes out just as i envisioned. Well, i have to say that this card was almost exactly what i pictured! I had even made a rough sketch before i began. The white portion was a little different than i would have liked, but it works. : )

I began by doing the main panel, i cut a rectangle of Bermuda Bay, then a panel of Pool Party that i cut freehanded in a wavy pattern, then repeated with a panel of Whisper White. I then glued them together, and added stitching using Going Grey marker. I die cut several snowflakes using the Northern Frost die, then i inked the sentiment stamp from Contempo Christmas using markers. I then stamped it and cut it out. After adhering everything on the card, i added lots and lots of pretties!! (rhinestones)
I put it all on a few different mats of Whisper White, Pool Party, and a Bermuda Bay cardbase.
I know that Bermuda Bay is retired, but this card would look equally as pretty with different shades of blue...or even pink....(i might have to try that one!)
