CTMH December Spotlight Blog Hop {...& H2H Challenge, too}


Welcome to the Close To My Heart December Spotlight Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Haley Dyer's blog.  But this is a circular hop, so it doesn't matter where you begin. ;)

This month we are spotlighting Sparkles & Pearls.  My card is featuring Clear SparklesLicorice Pearls, and lots of glitter.  You may need to click on the picture to see the detail better.

I learned something while making this card.  I learned that when you add Prisma Glitter over Black cardstock, it looks green.  That totally works for this card.  Lucky me!  lol

The main stamp set I used is called Tannenbaum.  The scroll-type detail above/below the sentiment is from a set called All The Best, which is available only in the Mistletoe Workshop-On-The-Go Kit.

This card also fits in the with the challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog this week, to post your fave holiday card(s).

Beautiful card, but are you sure that the sentiment is from "All the Best"? I see the flourish, but not the sentiment. Aloha from sunny Oahu:)

How funny about the prisma glitter and black cs. That was one of my favorite parts...which there were a lot of favorite parts. :) Love the nontraditional ornament (pearl) color and even the little touch of the pearls below the bow...perfect (as usual).
