Lite Bright by Stitchy Bear Stamps


It's a new challenge today at Crafty Gals Corner
and our theme is Sparkle and Glitter!!!

I have made a card using the festive image Lite Bright



For my Sparkle and Glitter- I used a red glitter paper by Doodlebug to cover a wood shaped embellishment- this lifted the tree image and gave a 3D look to the card.  I also used glossy accents on the star and the light bulbs.  Then to finish off the look I used Stickles on the holly leaves.

I hope you get a chance to enter your Sparkle and Glitter creations and get in the running for some awesome prizes from our sponsors this week.

911 Never Forget by Bugaboo

It's a fun  new challenge at CCC Digi Creations
The theme is Anything Goes- so hop on over and enter!!

The Sponsor this time is Bugaboo Digital Stamps-
I am using the image named 911 Never Forget.


I saw this image and it struck me...since this challenge is in September...I thought it was a perfect time to create something to honor September 11, 2001.
There are so many stories and memories from that day and the following weeks, but what still resonates with me is seeing the American flag everywhere I went.

So I made a frame and enclosed the image inside.  I bought a $1 wooden frame at the craft store and painted it white....then I covered it in  patriotic paper from my stash...I added a die-cut banner and also many die-cut stars to finish it off.

This will now hang in my home and remind my family how much we have to be grateful for everyday, living in the USA.
Hugs,
Amy
