FCCB Sparkle and Bling Challenge # 188

Hi! Everyone this week at FCCB the challenge is to make a project with sparkle and bling. Since I am working on Christmas cards I just added some glitter and sequins to my  wreath card. I cut this wreath from the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge at 3.00".

This card was quick and simple to make. I used red card stock for the base and rounded the bottom corners. This card opens by flipping up. Then I cut white card stock and rounded the bottom corners. I used a red glitter pen to faux stitch. The Merry Christmas is heat embossed with sticky embossing powder and Garnet  Martha Stewart glitter was sprinkled on and heated also.  The keeps the glitter from flaking off. For the bow I used red watercolor marker to define the bow and the red glitter pen for polka dots which are kinda hard to see in the picture. The cut has little red berries but instead I used red sequins for sparkle.

Here is the inside of this card. 

Sometimes I don't finish the insides so I can use them as I need them and add a message that is appropirate for the occasion, but I know Who I am sending this card to so I went ahead and finished it.

Hope you share your sparkle and bling project with us and link up to our challenge at FCCB.

Bye, Bye for Now
