Spectrum Noir November Challenge

I've got another holiday card to share with you. Aren't you so excited? LOL

Over at Spectrum Noir, we have our November Monthly Challenge going on right now...and it's a challenge you can't pass up. ANYTHING GOES! can create something for our BONUS Challenge Theme: Christmas/Winter. Click HERE for all the challenge details.

I gotta start off by telling you that this is one of those cards that looks waaaaaay better in person. It really sparkles and shines. The closeup pic helps to give you a better visual of that.

I used Spectrum Aqua Markers - Teal, Navy and a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen - Starry Sky to watercolor the night sky on Spectrum Aqua Extra White Watercolour Cardstock.. The sparkle from the Sparkle Pen, mixed in with the Aqua Marker colors, gives a nice overall sparkle. Then I added some white die-cut stars covered with glitter and gold sequins stars.

I'm always super busy with like EVERYTHING during the holiday quick and easy designs are what I usually go for. This card is one of those. I love the new Sara Davies Signature Collection - Contemporary Christmas Stamps and Dies. The Festive Sentiments Stamp Set allows you to mix and match words to create just the right message. And I think my favorite of all is the Scenic Borders Die Set. It comes with 3 border dies, however I just used one of them. I adore the little heart cut-outs for some of the windows in the houses! So cute! This die will work all year - not just for Christmas.

The gold embossed sentiment, along with the added glitter and sequins, make for a very sparkly and festive holiday greeting.

I hope you take time to play the Spectrum Noir November Challenge with us.

Thanks for stopping by today.
