Sparkling Ornament for Friday Mashup

I just love the challenge that Amanda is bringing us this week at The Friday Mashup! It's all about ornaments and sparkle!

If you come to my blog regularly you'll know that I love to make Christmas cards....doesn't matter what time of year it is, I love making them. When I saw that Amanda wanted us to make a card with a Christmas ornament I went 'wooohooo'!

Sparkle is the 2nd portion of the challenge and that is usually a little tougher for me but SU's Silver Glimmer Paper made it easy for me to get all the sparkle I needed and more on this card. For a little extra bling I added rhinestones to the ornaments and also to the sentiment banner.

Head on over to the Friday Mashup blog to check out all the great cards from the rest of the design team, and then play along with us, we'd love to see what you come up with!
