Happiness



December is already here and that's the beginning of a whole bunch of things....including the new Creative Challenge from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This month we have a new sketch for you.


I've used the Bamboo Floral Vase from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Leaf Robe set.  After cutting it out with the Lacey Oval die from Spellbinders, I then added several different types of flocking and Sparkle N Soft flock.  Dark Chocolate flock was adhered to a few of the branches, Sparkle N Soft Sapphire Silk highlights the lacy openings border as well as the vase.  Sparkling Sands was adhered to the bamboo stems.  A light coat of pink chalk was applied to the background.  The papers are from the Graphic 45 Bird Song collection - perfect for this stamp set.  For more details, you can visit the SNS Gallery (search under my name and everything will pop up).

Be sure to visit the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges blog to see what the other SNS designers have created for you as well as enter your take of the sketch.  You could win some fantastic products from Sparkle N Sprinkle.
