CCC #22... Sparkle!!

{for my Shining the Light post, please scroll down}

Hello... I'm back!!  Here with my post for the new CASology challenge.  This week our cue word is "sparkle".   There are so many fun directions you can take that one for sure.  All the information can be found here...  and now I have some exciting news to share!! CASology is having a design team call!!  You can find out all the information here.   We are also joined this week by our fabulous guest designer, Birgit!!! 




I went with my favorite layout for my card this week (hey... if it ain't broke, don't fix it!).   The stamps are from Penny Black and are perfect for this simple, simple layout. I also decided to use the traditional red and green Christmas combo.  The tree and image were stamped and then I randomly applied lots and lots of rhinestones to the tree.   To give just a little bit more interest to the card I rounded one corner on the card base and the second layer.  I actually made a card like this last year at Christmas time and I decided to remake it because I think it makes a lovely non-traditional holiday card.

Thanks for stopping by...  make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer Birgit,    Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Penny Black; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!
