Merry Everything

The Less is More Challenge this week is 'Sparkle' and this is the card I have made.


There is certainly plenty of sparkle isn't there.  I have been playing with my embossing paste again, this time I used a translucent one and added glitter whilst it was still wet, the mask that I used was in one of my Simon Says Stamp Card Kits.  The snowflakes are both Spellbinders dies and the sentiment is a stamp from another of my Simon Says Stamp Card Kits.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 148 - Sparkle
Crafty Card Makers Challenge 105 - Clean and Simple
My Craft Spot Monday Challenge 120 - Sparkle & Shine!
Through The Purple Haze Challenge - Christmas Makes
CAS on Sunday Challenge 22 - Winter Theme

Thank you so much for joining me today, it is so kind of you to take the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.

Pauline this is just gorgeous. Less is always more!!!!! I also love the font on your sentiment. I have never heard of embossing "paste". Oh so much to learn with so little time. Love this. Enjoy your day.
