Sparkle N Sprinkle December Challenge

Wow!! December has arrived way too soon.  I missed out on the last week of November due to a tooth problem.  I feel like I have been in a fog due to all the pain meds.  Feeling a bit better today but I sure will be happy when I can eat solids again without being very careful how I chew.  Grrrr!!

Enough about me.  With the beginning of a new month we also have a new challenge at Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges Blog.  But first let’s reveal the winner of the November Sketch Challenge.  The winner is ……Verna Angerhofer.  Congratulations!!  Head back to the Challenge Blog for details how to collect your prize. 

This month we have another sketch challenge.  This means half the work is already done since you already have your layout!! 

This sketch is simple but has so many possibilities.  Let’s see what you can create!!  Post a link to your card at the SNS Creative Challenges Blog before December 31 at 8:00 p.m. ET  and you might be the December winner.

Here is a card to get you inspired.  I used Frosted Carmine and Black Suede Velvet Glitter on sticker paper to create this lovely background. 

This is enhanced with dry embossing
 and masking. 
Go to our Tips and Techniques here to see the Masking on Velvet Glitter Technique and here to see the new Dry Embossing on Velvet Glitter Technique.  The image is Bamboo Floral Vase, combined with the Feel Better Soon sentiment, and layered on this sparkling background.  Find the details of this card in the SNS gallery here.

Now check out what my other fellow designers have created with this sketch at the challenge blog.
