Challenge #168: Sparkle and Shine!

Hi!  Welcome to the newest Paper Girls Challenge: Sparkle and Shine!

Kristy here, and I love the pop of sparkle and shine on projects.  I often reach for gold splatters to add a pop to a project.  Gold or silver threads help ground popped up elements. Glittered card bases are a quick way to add some sparkle to a card.  The choices are endless.

We're are lucky to be collaborating again with Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge Blog. Combine your Sparkle and Shine project with their challenge "Love is in the Air" for entries on both sites.  Think balloons, butterflies, clouds and more!  Be sure to check out Double Trouble for even more ideas - and link up your project!  So, be sure to visit their fantastic challenge blog and let them know we sent you!

For my project, I combined a lot of different sparkly and shiny elements: Stickles, Wink of Stella, and a glittered card base.

Here are projects from our other wonderful Paper Girls:

I made this "YOU Sparkle" gift box reusing a Ferrero Rocher chocolate container
and BoBunny items.

I made this hanging photo collage with lots of sparkly gold and silver elements like glitter and metallic papers.
I made two cards for this challenge because I love glitter! On the birthday card I added extra fine glitter details to this sweet card on the cake and faux stitching, and of course glitter gems. On the smile card I used glitter paper, glitter washi tape, and heart shaped glitter gems. 

And now...congratulations to the winner of Challenge #167:
