All that Glitters is Gold for Week 2 of Anything But a Card Challenges No. 33

Good Morning Everyone! Welcome to Anything But a Card Challenges... and some fabulous new "SPARKLING" inspiration from our designers for week 2 of Challenge No. 33.

You could be inspired with the written definition; go with a passage from a book or poem - or even quote a song... and of course we include going crazy with bling!

LOTS of Rock Candy Distress Glitter! I can't get enough of this gorgeous subtle sparkle! Add in my favourite colour combination and stamps – this was a tag that was a dream to make. Please visit my blog for more details.

This journal page is very sparkly. :) I used glitter paints, stickles and paper that had glitter in it. Please visit my blog for more details.

I am the proverbial magpie and glitter and bling are my kinda thing. However, I've tried to go for a more understated (!) vintagy look with this altered MDF crown. Check out my blog for more details!

Sparkle in my stash extends to a couple of bottles of Distress Stickles! But I found this lovely quote and used a little sparkle on a flower made from the Tattered Pine Cone Die which I added to a mixed media ATC background. Please visit my blog for more details!
