Christmas Card Challenge Week #38

Howdy ya'll!

I hope you've had a good weekend.  I certainly did.  I have done nothing but create stuff.  I didn't even leave the house once yesterday.  That almost never happens. lol  It's amazing what happens when your creative mojo kicks into full gear and you just go with it. :)

I have another Christmas Card challenge to share with you today.  This weeks challenge is glitter. *shudder*  I'm not sure I've mentioned this before, but I am totally phobic to glitter.  And when I mean phobic, I MEAN phobic. lol  I'm not sure why though.  I never use loose glitter and aside from the occasional use of Stickles, you won't find any glitter on my projects.  If I need a bit of sparkle somewhere, I use my Sakura Stardust pen.  Needless to say, this weeks challenge was just that, challenging.  I did get a card put together though.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

The patterned paper in the background came glittered already.  I just cut it down to size, and added my other elements.  You can see a little bit of it up in the top left corner, but just barely.  I used last weeks Taylored Expressions sketch (TESC144), and last weeks Stampin Sisters In Christ challenge (#102), which was to incorporate music.  I love my results and the look of the card, even though I had trouble with the glitter part. lol

Please keep in mind that all challenges are optional.  Any Christmas/Winter/Holiday card will do.  The idea is to help get your Christmas card stash started.  Also, it is not necessary to use a SCRS stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do.  I do hope you'll head over to see the wonderful cards that my friends have created for you today.  They're all pretty fantastic, as usual.

Have a great day!
