Challenge #270 The word is.....

SPARKLE!!  Isn't that a great word for this time of year?!  Super challenge!  So, come on and get out your stickles, your glitter, whatever ya got and go crazy! Here's my card!

 I started with a bright pink card base.  It's Papertrey ink cardstock, but I can't seem to remember the color!  It is stamped in SU's flannel background in Purely Pomegranate.  I made an attempt to then spatter it with white. that didn't make large enought spatters so I used an old SU set with random 'dots'. I stamped them in pigment ink-white.  Still not completely satisfied I then used a falling snow stencil and Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle texture paste.  So that's why you see so many dots on my flannet bg!
 Trees from a new SU set make the background for my snowman. That circle is then sponged in pool party, coastal cabana and not quite navy. Then lots of sparkle was added with Stardust Stickles.  The snowman is from Darcie's  (search snowmen on DarciesHeartAndHome.com) .
 He's colored in copic markers and then MORE Stardust Stickles were added to his scarf, hat and cup.
One more close up!
Now, if you haven't already, go on over to JUST US GIRLS and check out all the DT inspiration!  We sure hope you'll join in this week!  You have until Thursday, Dec. 11 at 9 pm. to do so!
Thanks for coming by and have a great day!
