And, now, on with the new Challenge for December.   The new theme is:

Shimmer, Sparkle, and Shine

You have all month to complete your project and link it up on the Challenge blog.  As always, a top three and a random winner will be picked.  Oh, you have to use at least one Stampsmith Stamp.  I used the image "Grace Christmas" for my Shimmery, Sparkly, and Shinny card.    

Grace was stamped with Vintage Sepia (VersaFine) on glossy white CS.  I layered the image with Rich Razzleberry (Stampin' Up).

On a piece of Blush Blossom CS (SU) I sprayed two different Glimmer Mists -Vintage Pink and Gold (Tattered Angels).  When dry, I added three rows of gold metallic ribbon and wrapped a piece of Green metallic ribbon around the CS.  This CS is glued to a card base of Rich Razzleberry.  Add the stamped unit. Tie a bow with the green ribbon and glue to card front.  Add dots of green Stickles (Ranger) to the background.  The camera does not really pick up the sparkle from the Glimmer Sprays.  But, it is there!

You will have all month to complete your project.  Let's see what you can come up with to inspire us!!  

Sparkly Christmas Card is also entered in a couple of my favorite challenges:
