Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Pink (and Candy Winner)

Hello, everyone!  It's Sunday, so that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week we would like you to Use Some Pink. This is a fun one for me - pink is my favourite colour!  I used an adorable image called Mini Snowman from Glitterbabe at The Stamping Boutique, and I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils.


I decided to make a shaker card - they are so fun!  I began by die-cutting a large snowflake (Penny Black) from white cardstock and then embossed it with Darice Snowflakes.  I added some beautiful ribbon from Crafty Ribbons that I won last year (thank you, Crafty Ribbons!).  I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps in Brilliance Pearlescent Coral and die-cut into a stitched tag (La-La Land).  Lastly I filled the shaker with sequins from my stash.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Pink challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week! 

Candy Winner

As promised, I would like to announce the winner of the candy I offered during the Glitter n Sparkle Birthday Blog Hop (pictured below). And the winner is...
