Holiday Sparkle Day 4

Hello friends!  Here we are on day four already.  One blink...two blinks and jump ahead here we are!  I am very excited to share some new cards with you today.  I am LOVING the bling and the pearls and while I illustrated this set I never imagined being able to use finally use all these fabulous things I have been hoarding on all my cards.  Watch out because I am ready to dazzle and pizzazz this holiday season.

My first card was create for that soft feminine person in your life.  We all have one.  The woman whose personality is warm and fuzzy.  I made sure to create a palette of warm colours and added some felt and ribbon to give my card some extra warmth.  Not only that I added some pearls and stitching for that cozy feeling.  Are you feeling it yet???

My second card was just as fun to create as the first one because I FINALLY get to show you the paisley.  I love paisley and couldn't wait to add it to one of my collections.  The paisley will look super cute decorated in pearls or rhinestones too.  But for this card I used it as a background stamp.

I love the simple ornament in this set. Plus all the places to add 'sparkle' to the images.
