A Little Sparkle

Hi friends.  Do you have your Christmas decorations down now that we're into the new year?  Hubby took our outdoor lights down, but we still have our indoor decorations up.  We really enjoy the tree lights, so we're hanging on for a bit.  I'd imagine we'll take everything down this weekend.

Another birthday card today.  This one had to have some sparkle on it for a special person, who I can't name, because the card hasn't been given yet.  The papers I used for the sunburst are glittery and the flowers have a sparkly center.  I used a glitter embossing powder on the sentiment, to draw it in with the rest of the card.  You can find a very easy to follow video about the sunburst background here

I'm entering these challenges:

We are at minus 30* F with the wind chill and the sky is black with snow on it's way. Your beautiful sunburst helped me forget just for a moment. Thank you for sharing this beautiful creation with us at Word Art Wednesday. I want to pray for ‘Multiplied Blessings’ including, but not limited to Peace, Prosperity and Health to you and your whole household during the 12 months in 2014.
