Boy oh boy...these weeks are flying by and I can't believe it's another TLT Challenge. It seems just like yesterday that it was Anita's ribbon challenge!
Today is the lovely Sue's turn and she chose Christmas Sparkle. Well, that's a no brainer for me as I LOVE sparkle! You might be surprised at the image I chose but there's a reason for it. Friends of ours are going to Australia and New Zealand over Christmas and New Year...in fact they're leaving on the 8th of December and as you know while we'll be shivering in the cold here in the UK they will be warm and toasty having barby's on the beach! I wonder if you can cook a turkey on a bbq lol. As they're leaving so early Sal's decided not to send any Christmas cards and hopes people will do the same with them. Me being me I wanted to send one and when I knew what Sue's challenge was set about figuring out what I could do for their card. This is what I came up with....
Magnum & Lily on Holiday!!! LOL...see I told you you'd be surprised :-D I think it's pretty cool though didn't quite match up to what I had in my head. You're probably wondering where the sparkle is but if you click on the picture you'll see the sand is made of glitter and actual Australian sand that Nicole brought back from her travels. Also the snowflakes are punched from glitter card, the drinks and umbrellas are glittered as are the coconuts on the palm tree and the sails of the boats. I decided there still wasn't enough sparkles so drew lines of glue down the stripes of the paper and sprinkled with glitter and added some Swarovski crystals to the centre of the snowflakes. What I really wanted to do was glitter up Lily's deck chair but thought she might look even more lost on it than she already is lol.
These two look cooler than cool!
Here you can see the glittered lines on the pp and the snowflakes with their crystals.
