Bring On The Bling at CCAYR

Can you believe it's March 1?
OMG, this year is going way too fast for me.

Our challenge this month at Christmas Cards All Year Round is to make a card with lots of sparkle and bling.  This can be glitter, pearls, Stickles, gems or anything else that sparkles.  It can't get much better than this fun challenge and I so hope you will join us this month.  You definitely want to see all the gorgeous and glitzy Christmas cards by the design team so hop on over to the BLOG and be sure you leave them love for all their hard work.  They really have some spectacular cards to share with you.

The DP is by Authentique and it's the first time I've used any of the 6 x 6 package.  I really love how they work together to give the card more dimension and color. The matting and card base is Cranberry by CM.  This adorable image is from LOTV and is a topper that I got from Hobby House.  Added Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes and Christmas Red to the beautiful Poinsettia made from Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn dies.  I thought the teeny heart brad from my stash just gave it that little something extra special for those snuggled up bunnies under the tree.

Our Prize this month  is sponsored by Platypus Creek Stamping & Craft

Fun Challenges I'm Entering:
Thanks so very much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.  Looking forward to seeing your entry on the CCAYR Challenge Blog with all that Bling!
