Sweet Stamps- Sparkle andBling

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Sparkle and Bling

  The image is stamped and embossed with White EP, and colored using a Technique Junkies technique from the latest newsletter- Mono Markers.  The Coordinations cardstock was embossed with the dots EP and sanded and Sakura Gelly Roll Pen colored on the sanded dots for sparkle. The Striped designer paper is by Authentique- the pad has the musical strip at the top of each strip. I embellished the corners with a Cheery Lynn corner die. I added rhinestones for some bling. The sparkly Poisin Ivy cardstock behind the candles is a little off white and very shimmery. I added more gold sparkle with a Spica Glitter Pen in Gold. 

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Poinsettia Candles HERE
Merry Christmas Script Sentiment HERE
Shades Die Ink Valentine HERE 
Fantasy White Detail EP HERE
Distress Clear Embossing Ink HERE

Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pen HERE
