Sparkle and Shine with ASFOS

Hi everyone and welcome to another challenge day at A Spoon Full of Sugar.  This week's challenge is Sparkle and Shine so get out your glitter, stickles, rhinestones and whatever else sparkles and shines and have a fun time creating.   The lovely Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts is sponsoring the challenge this week with a gift certificate.  Pop on over to Nikki's online store to see her fabulous selection of crafting toys.

Today's project combines a few things I've been wanting to do for a long time. 
  • Created a cardfolder following Moni's fabulous tutorial (loved it & will make more)
  • Used K&CO DP I've had in my stash for ages
  • Inked up my Hanglar & Stanglar rubber stamp
  • Leaves: Cut Prima Flower petals & coloured edges with Copics (R35 & R0000)

I used the Tonic Sonic non-stick small scissors available at Make-it-Crafty to cut my Hanglar rubber stamp and they were perfect for cutting rubber.  Lace ribbon, gorgeous Webster's flower, paper lace doily, charm and handmade blue pin were a gift from my sweet friend Zoe.  Rhinestone swirls, Crystal Stickles and twine are from my stash.  Image stamped with Memento ink on Xpress-it Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Face: E000, E01, E11 & E21; Jacket and Hat: R0000, R000, R30, R32 & R35 plus Stickles on jacket trim; Skirt: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG05, BG07 & BG09; Shoes, Scard and Bow: E30, E31, E35 & Blender; Wings: CO, C1 & Stickles).

Here's a side view of the cardfolder.  This is a gift for a friend and the cardholder will hold some goodies with stamped Hanglar and Magnolia images.

I'm entering the cardfolder into the following challenges:
Take a peek at the rest of the wonderful DT's smashin' creations for some inspiration and join in the fun and submit your creations.  We'd love to see them.

Beatiful card holder, Maria! Love the DPs, and most of all, how you colored this hAnglar image. My new hAnglars just arrived yesterday so I should be mounting and then inking them up. You have certainly inspired me! Hugs, Cami
