♥ Simon Says...Make it Sparkle! ♥

The countdown is on!! 4 more days until Christmas! Time is fling by! Personally I can't wait for this year to be over with! The worst year ever for me! But, I am looking forward to Christmas. The kids make it all worth it!! Love seeing Christmas through their eyes! Today also marks a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This weeks theme is....Make it Sparkle!

The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Hero Arts. I am using the Vintage Wishes Clear Stamps and Dies Combo for my card. Such a cute set!!

I stamped all the images using Jet Black StazOn on some Neenah Solar White Cardstock and then added some Aleene's Tacky glue to the images and then "poured" on lots of FloraCraft Diamond Dust Glitter to make everything glisten.

The background paper is from the Sweet Peppermint Paper Pad by Prima. I also added some HA Neutrals Mixed Accents (white pearls) as well.

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

This is my favorite of the cards shown. If I had seen this card design earlier I would have bought this set to use for my own cards this year. Will save this for ideas for next year. Love how you added dimension. Gorgeous!!
