A Shiny Christmas

It's less than a week until Christmas. And less than 2 weeks left in 2013.  Where did the year go?  I'm seeing stars! Which is good because it's time for the new Dare To Be Sassy Thursday Challenge (#208) at Sassy Studio Designs.  And this week the challenge is "Sparkle and Shine" (use things that sparkle and shine, can be items or glitter, Stickles, etc...).
Here's my card.


Stuff I Used:
Image-Don't Open 'til Christmas Sassy digital by Sassy Studio Designs
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Lips-R20, R22
Hair-E41, E43, E44
Earring-Sakura Silver metallic gel pen
Pants-B91, B95
Top-C1, C3, C5
Present-B91, B95, C1, C3, C5, Sakura clear glitter gel pen
DP-Recollections Starry Night pack
Cardstock-the Paper Company Rainy Day pack, Staples Grey
Ribbon-Michaels $1 bin Silver trim
Sentiment-Computer generated

My "shiny" elements are the DP, earring, ribbon on present, silver ribbon/trim.  I popped up the blue panel on homemade light blue foam squares.  And the image was popped up on more light blue foam squares.  I added a smaller image and more DP on the inside.  I liked that the DP pack had the same pattern in both the grey and the blue with silver.  That's how I got the idea to match and repeat the panel for the front.  There are a few patterns in the pack that are both in grey and blue/silver.  And it was a Hot Buy, so it was only $5!

Now it's your turn, break out all your supplies and make something for the challenge.  It doesn't have to be a Christmas card. What about all the cards you'll need for next year?

Remember, Santa is still watching and if you don't play along, he won't bring you everything you want.

Thanx for looking and please comment.
