My kind of challenge!!

Over at the Cuttlebug site, they're having a great challenge/contest going this week. if you know anything about my style, it's all about the bling, baby! I love shimmer, sparkle & glitz until it's oozing all over my projects. Well, I do sorta tone it back a little, I just don't want to cause blindness from all the glare. LOL!! Anyway, back to the subject at hand, over at Cuttlebug they want people to create a project with lots of glitter, bling & of course, the Cuttlebug. The winners (there's 15, I think?) will get a new, Oh My Crafts Exclusive embossing folder! If you go check out their site, they're some really cool looking folders!!

I used a card I had already started for a card swap, but this one was left over. I added more sparkle to the title, the divider strip & the snowflake by adding pretty clear & blue Stickles & also on the brad heads & the centers of the embossed snowflakes. Then, there's the pretty blue jewel snowflake in the center of the layered paper snowflake to give it real shine! I even used the Bazzill Bling cardstock in Diamond for the embossed top portion of the card & did a little reverse inked embossing trick using some blue Brilliance ink. This is one of my favorite brands of ink for the metallic shimmer it gives. I wish I could get a better shot of this, but it's overcast here this morning & it's supposed to rain with snow later on. I hope you can see enough of the shimmer. You can see more details in a larger view by clicking on the photo.



















There's already some pretty stiff competition as I've gone through many of the entries so far. I have a feeling this one is gonna be a tough decision for those who are picking the winners. I know I would not want that task!

Well, this is all I have for today. I have a ton of projects that I need to get finished, plus I want to start making a lot of my cookie dough up to freeze so that when it gets closer to Christmas, I can just thaw, bake & decorate! I'd love to make more types of cookies than I do, but it's probably best that I don't ... it's bad enough the way it is.

God Bless & have a great day!
