Sparkle, Shimmer and Bling for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time.


This week, Kathy is asking us to
Add Sparkle, Shimmer and/or Bling
on our Christmas cards.


Do you ever think a card looks great until you see the photo of it?

That's what happened here.

I put a Glimmer Paper snowflake over a Whisper White snowflake
and thought they were all lined up.

It seems that they're not.

But it has sparkle, shimmer and bling.

ANYTHING GOES


Now, I hope you'll pull your Sparkle out and join us at

Thanks so much for the visit and your lovely comments.
I know I'm behind on visiting and hope to catch up this week.

Enjoy!

I wouldn't have noticed the snowflakes weren't lined up if you hadn't mentioned it! Love all the shimmer and sparkle! I must get a card done for Merry Monday this week as that is a great challenge!

Wendy said...

Your card is beautiful, Bonnie! Love the colors, sentiment and that sparkly snowflake! I too would not have noticed the snowflakes being lined had you not mentioned it. I think it looks fabulous though! Full of sparkle! What's not to love! Have a great week! :)

I think it is great idea to make Christmases cards in summer!
I agree with you the cards on the photo look different: sometimes better, sometimes worse)

Kylie said...

I love silver and blue together. So elegant and perfect for a Christmas Card! xx

Loll said...

Love the silver glimmer paper with the lost lagoon background. So perfect together. And, of course, you've used my favourite embossing folder --- awesome!! xx

Debbie Henderson said...

Very sprakly, gorgeous and elegant Bonnie - glad to see you used some artistic licence in the placement of the layers of your star. :-)

Yes, this exact thing happens to me all the time...I always see a boo-boo I missed. However, Don't think that is the case with this pretty one. It looks perfect to me.The shadowing on your snowflake looks like a design detail to me, and gives a lot of dimension. Against the deep turquoise background, with that sparkling silver circle, it's just grand. Of course that's my favorite snowflake embossing. You do the white & turquoise - just the bestest! Bee-U-tiful card. TFS & Hugs

Gorgeous Bonnie - love the snowy texture and silver glimmer!

Kristie Goulet said...

Very pretty, Bonnie! Love how you used the sparkle and shine! Have a great week!

Bobby said...

Sparkle and shimmer it does, Bonnie. I always think things looks different on the screen, and sometimes the angle of the card when you place things on it can distort them.

Brenda said...

This is a stunning card Bonnie! I am loving that snowflake and I love the color combo with some glitter paper-just gorgeous! If you wouldn't have told us that the snowflakes were off, I would have thought you off set them on purpose. I think they look great off set! Hugs, Brenda

Karren said...

What you're meant to say, Bonnie, is that you intentionally offset the snowflakes very slightly to provide added interest :) This card is fabulous, regardless. Love the sparkle and love the snowflake.
