Magical Monday - Christmas Arrangement

Welcome back to another fantastic Magial Monday challenge at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes (check it out, Nina's new store is open!).  Today's challnge was to "Glitz It Up" and I really did this but couldn't get a photo to show it all to it's full IRL splendar! So just to make sure you notice it's some deets:
~ the ribbon is colored with a Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen,
~ the ornaments were covered in red stickles and the covered again with Glassy Accents (the berries were just covered with the Glassy Accents),
~ the greenery was colored first with the Clear Star pen and the colored over in green (that way the it's just a bit glittery).

Got the inspirations for the background of the image panel from Michelle Zindorf's site (check out this toot for more info). Layout was inspired by Stamping 411: Sketch Challenge #128.

Hope you have a magical week and are surviving the rush into the holidays!


PS I'll announce the winner of the blog candy later today. Thanks everyone for playing along and hope to see you continue with our regular challenges! :)

I can see the glitz very well, especially when I click on it and enlarge it. Of course, that's a great feature for those of us that don't like to wear our glasses early in the morning! Well, off to get ready for that 7 AM meeting.

Oh year, love your card, colors are gorgeous! See ya soon!

This is so pretty Kim - the yellow background sure does flood the card with sunshine!! Love all the glitter and sparkle (a close up of the pic after clicking on it really shows that up well!!). The sentiment is perfect!
Hugs, Danielle
