I like things that sparkle. Just sayin'.

I hope you had a wonderful World Card Making day on Saturday and I hope it spilled into Sunday, too!  If you haven't entered my giveaway yet, I am leaving it open through today (Monday), as I know some are unable to check out blogs on the weekends.

Stampendous! has joined with Core'dinations for a week of inspiration and fun prizes, too!  I have a fun card to share with you today.  I used the Cling Merriest Wish stamp for this holiday card using non-traditional colors.  I chose a butter yellow cardstock from the Tim Holtz collection and sanded the edges a bit to soften them.  I then used the fabulous glitter cardstock as an accent strip.  A bit of May Arts twine and some Eyelet Outlet bling finish it off!

  12. I've never thought about using black and white and yellow for Christmas colors, but than again, why not? It works especially well with the New Year's wishes on the card. I like the way you distressed the edges as well!

  16. Such bright and unusual colors for Christmas! Love it! It reminds us of your sunny personality, Jingle! (and the fact that it's always sunny on Christmas Day here in So. California where it's frequently in the 70's) (not to rub it in or anything) hee hee Love your card! Thanks for playing!
