Another Barbles challenge card...

Is it ok to fall in love with your own card? Because I really, really love this card. I can't believe I even managed to get the sparkle to photograph. I believe the happy twinkle in my eye as I beheld my masterpiece might have made the glitter shine a little more, lol!

So, this is my second entry for Barbles' challenge over at Kinsale Creations - and I know there are going to be more. I am in the midst of hurry-up-and-finishing a set of baby thank yous, and a blanket for said baby, and about twelve million other things (and the kitchen floor is getting desperate...)

Supplies: snowflake sparkle paper from Best Creations;
green glitter paper from Colorbok;
deer & sentiment from Inkadinkado;
Memento ink in Tuxedo Black & London Fog;
Stampendous Fun Flock in Cotton Ball;
Martha Stewart markers;
Sakura clear glaze pen (mistletoe) and black glaze pen (eyes & nose);
standard & lacy circle Nesties
The offset stamping of the sentiment was a boo-boo - I didn't press evenly on the first try, and like a tool I'd already coloured everything, so dangit, I REALLY didn't want to start over. I stamped again to finish the solid black "k," and the sort of 'halo' formed for the rest of the sentiment actually made me happy.
You have until November 30th to link up to Barb's challenge for some amazing prizes, so go see how you can be inspired by the beautiful photo she's provided!

xoxo,
Jessi
