Merry Monday 114


Happy Monday, peeps!  That means a new Merry Monday challenge….I couldn’t play last week and really missed it, so I wanted to make sure I was able to play this week!  Here’s our challenge from Katie:

Well, I knew what sentiment I wanted to use….it’s from My Favorite Things’ Seasonal Sentiments.  But what to make “sparkly”?  I then remembered this awesome sparkly paper that a sweet customer gave me, so I went to work:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Merry Monday 114 Sparkle Christmas Card Stampin

Since the paper was so striking, I didn’t add a thing to it except the sentiment itself, matted with some Red Glimmer Paper.  I cut out a little piece of one of the swirls and popped it up, and added a rhinestone.  I hope you can see how pretty the paper is:


The card base is Bravo Burgundy, and I added a pretty sentiment and “sparkle” to the inside as well:


Christmas is a perfect time to add sparkle and shine to your project, so I hope you can play along!  Be sure to check the Merry Monday blog to see ALL the awesome creations!  See you there!

The fudgesicle Cassidy was eating just sort of got the better of her!


Her little tongue just wasn’t quite long enough, LOL!
