Seasons Greetings And Christmas Cheer

Today is a new day, and a new mini challenge for Christmas In July at Catch The Bug!  We've had a fabulous time, so far, creating projects for you to be inspired by.  We hope you're enjoying playing along with us!

Our mini challenge theme, today, is Sparkle And shine.  We want to see you create a project with sparkle and shine.  The more the merrier! I love sparkle and shine, don't you?!  Remember, if you play along, you could win an awesome prize from Bugaboo Stamps!

My Christmas card uses the image Make It Snappy - Reindeer Trio, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. Sparkle and shine has been added to the image with a clearstar gelly roll pen. For even more sparkle and shine, I added blue gemstones, as well.  Who doesn't love bling?! Even guys love some bling in thier lives!  Good thing, too, because I created this as a masculine Christmas card!  My sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and is punched with oval and scalloped oval punches. My card layout uses the sketch at Fetch A Sketch.
