Bloggers Challenge- Sparkle and Shine

 Sparkle and Shine is the challenge at Bloggers Challenge this week- and I have been missing joining in!  I made this card for my charge nurse at work:
 This uses a TJ technique called Mono Markers. I love the depth of color achieved!  I used an image by Sweet Stamps. I used Creative Inspirations paint Fairy Dust over the marker on the candle to add sparkle, and also added sparkle to the centers of the flowers. For the background of the candles, I added a sparkly/shimmery cardstock - the cardstock is slightly off white IRL.

 I am celebrating Christmas with my Family in my hometown of Kankakee, Ill Saturday. So, I am still singing Christmas Hymns and wrapping Christmas gifts : )  And, I may have to make some cookies tomorrow.......
