Just Add Ink #98...Just Add "Sparkle"

Our Challenge to you this week is to just add "Sparkle" from the lovely Patrice Easton,  adding sparkle is such an easy thing to do, especially being this time of year, you can add it to Christmas cards, Birthday cards just about anything really.

Well as it's nearly Christmas and l still need a couple more cards, l went with that theme for mine, but l did sidestep the traditional colours and went for a more earthy tone.........

                           Here's a close-up so you can see l did actually "Add Sparkle"............

A short and sweet post from me today, we would love you to play along with our challenge for this week and hope that at this busy time of year you can find some crafting time and join us!

  3. Love the earthy tones you've chosen here Nikki, and that gorgeous glitter looks divine! Nice and 'sparkly'.

  4. Ditto to the comments above! Love the warm, earthy tones, and the embossed background ... the touch of glitter is 'just enough'. Love this, my friend.

  5. Wow Nikki, yours was the first card that caught my eye when I had a look over the JAI blog. It's so beautiful. I love how you have used the "Lovely as a tree" set. I think that set is going from my 'I like' list to 'I need' list lol.

  6. Nikki, this card is divine. Love the neutral colours.
