Allsorts challenge week 329 - Sparkle

The challenge this week at Allsorts has been chosen by Tracey Mouse and she has asked us to use some Sparkle on our card.

Woodware - Snow is falling stamp.
Embossed with WOW - Silver Bells embossing powder
Papers - LOTV/Nitwits
Snowflakes - EK Success punch and Poppy Stamps - Giovanna snowflake
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Ribbon - SU

The photo does not actually do this card justice and as the Beach Boys sang - God only knows?, 
 why I didn't put the sentiment over the ribbon.

We have a fabulous prize this week

Please do check out the challenge rules.

You post made me smile Kathleen, the times I make a card, then look at the photo and wonder why didn't I........and then it's usually too late. Like one that went off to C & C, only on screen did I or they realise it was of Australian origin.

A lovely and elegant feel to your card today and the sentiment looks fine where it is.

Hope you have a good weekend.

You're being VERY harsh on yourself there Kath . . . this card looks just fine the way it is. Love all the glitz.

Happy Saturday.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

I'm positive that's exactly what the Beach Boys sang! Especially Mike... I'm sure he's always loved his ribbons, lol.
It's a fabulous card either way and I LOVE that tree stamp! x

Loving the silver sparkle of that fabulous tree and the snowflakes Kath... it's a gorgeous card - and no reason that the sentiment needed to be over/on the ribbon! It looks perfect as it is!

Big hugs and have a great weekend..

It's beautiful Kath. Lovely stamp, fab diecuts and papers. Love all the sparkle.
I think we all wish we'd done something differently when we look at a photo of a finished card...our own worst critics! This is lovely just as it is!

Wowsers! Your photo looks pretty sparkly to me! That tree is gorgeous with the silver against that deep red. Love the shape of this image too..very modern & free. The snowflakes added even more glitz and the ribbon looks great with the silver & red of the tree rectangle. A nice layout & pretty papers. I think you did a fab job with this one!! (Hope the renov project is going great too). TFS & Hugs
