Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books.

Lots of Sparkle

I love this digital image from A Day for Daisies called Candy Elf  and chose it for this Lots of Sparkles challenge at Come and Get It this week.   A Day for Daisies is one of the sponsors for this challenge and I just love there cute digital images. 

I used a die and then used an embossing folder to add texture to the poinsettia  that I cut out of some shiny vellum paper and added some pearls for sparkle. I coloured the image with Copics and added some gold glitter to the Christmas Ball and some fluff to the balls at the end of her hat.  To complete mt card  I added a die sentiment. 

Thank you for stopping by.
