Timeless Tuesday .... Holiday Sparkle

Hey There!! Here with my card for this week's Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC139) and this challenge is a super special one.   If you play along with this week's challenge you will have the chance to win this month's ENTIRE Flourishes release!  How awesome is that??? Super awesome in my book!!   You can check out all the details right here.    And I have one more exciting thing to share.... I'm going to be giving you a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets being released this month called Holiday Sparkle.  The challenge this week is to make a card with an ornament on it or to make an ornament.




For my card I used some super beautiful patterned paper from My Minds Eye called Lost & Found Christmas.  I stamped the pine bough from the Holiday Sparkle set on PTI's Fine Linen using Crushed Olive ink, trimmed it out, applied some Diamond Glaze and added some Flower Soft in Polar White.  I stamped the santa ornament on cream cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink, colored the image with my Copics and trimmed it out.  I used my Gold and Silver Spica pens to add a bit a sparkle to santa.   The layout for my card comes from Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch.

Now off you go to check out what the Timeless Tuesday design team of Silke, Tammy, Beate, Maki, Cindy & Heather have created, as well as the Flourishes design team!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Fine Linen, Vintage Cream; PP:  My Mind's Eye; Copic Markers; Flower Soft; Spellbinders plain & scallop circle dies; Long Rectangle die; Stamps:  Flourishes Holiday Sparkle
