Celebrate today

Time for another Sparkle Creations Challenge and this week it is Buttons and Bling.

I used this sketch from Practical Scrappers:

This color challenge from the Little Paper Shop:

Which are pretty similiar to the CASE study inspiration:

I also incorporated the Oh Alice challenge, of which Sparkle Creations is the sponsor, which is to sparkle your card - I glitzed up her barrette.  I used the cute Lantern Rin, I just love her, along with some much hoarded Scenic Route paper.  This is also for the Pile it On challenge - layers - I even put the lantern on foam squares although hard to tell in the picture.

I hope you play along with us at Sparkle Creations, be sure to check out what the rest of the designers have done.  Hey use a Sparkle Creations card with some sparkle and you can enter both challenges and have 2 chances to win a cute little stamp!

Hi Laurel,

Like this one a lot, that kimono-girl is very nice and the lantern looks great in that paper and the background paper is pretty! Just like a 'rice'wall like they use in old Japanese houses! Like it a lot!

Hugs,
Wendy
