Shimmer and Sparkle

This week at Daydream Designs we've been sponsoring a delightful challenge blog, Anything Goes--With a Twist and this week's challenge is Shimmer and Sparkle.  We have a number of great sets that beg shimmer and sparkle so we are delighted to promote this challenge.   You can see some Dreamers' samples on our Daydream Designs blog, or be sure to take a look at the samples by the Anything Goes-With a Twist design team....then join in the fun for your chance to win a $20 coupon for a shopping spree at Daydream Designs

I decided to create a little sparkly myself!  I'm using some of our newest sets, all a part of the Winter Wonderland ensemble.  

I used a sheet from our paper pack (LOVE these colors) for the background layered onto Soft Suede (SU) cardstock.  Most of our digi papers coordinate with SU cardstock colors (cause that's what I use all the time!)  I accented with strips of designer papers from my SU stash and created a snowflake border using a Martha Steward punch and Coastal Cabana cardstock (SU).

Here's a close up so you can see the sparkles better!  I used one image from Christmas Wonderland Trees, made copies exactly the same size so I could fussy cut and layer elements from the image for dimension.

The sentiment comes from Christmas Wonder Sentiment set.  For added sparkle I put rhinestones on every place I could!

Here are the sets I used with links to the store:
