Papertake Weekly is Simply Sparkling xx

Remember remember, the 5th of November!!!

As it is bonfire night on Wednesday, the challenge over at PTW this week is to create something sparkly and glittery. You can use glitter, gems, anything at all, as long as it sparkles lol xxx

Well I didn't need to be told twice, cos you knows how I love me glitter.

So I used an Elzybells stamp, coloured with PMs natch and layered with a nestie, and the giant snowflake is a Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder, which I covered with Glamour Dust. The silver sparkly mesh ribbon, which is absolutely gorgeous in real life - you cannot tell properly from this picture - I got from a wholesale warehouse near here.

The little gem, in the centre of the snowflake is a Swarovski crystal (it really is I promise you!!) which I got from Craftwork Cards, but the other bling is just cheapo stuff which I had in my stash. The chunky snow is Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels. And last but by no means least, and just by way of a change, my very fave and very gorgeous MSBP. Oh I know I am getting a bit boring with it but I can't help it - it's sat there looking at me and practically begging to be used lol xxx

Here's a different angle so you can see the faux snow a bit better!!! Unusually for me, there is not a scrap of patterned paper in sight. A very rare thing, but I think it is better without in this case - I wanted the glitz to do the talking lol xxx!!!!

Can't wait to see your fabulous and sparkly work. Check out the other DT girls fabulous stuff as well cos it is just fabulous.

Have a great evening - while you are reading this, me and my cold (thanks Richard - not) will be hard at it at card club so I am going to schedule this - hope it works.

BFN and love and hugs xxxxxx
