SPARKLES so Bright... You Gotta Wear Shades for Anything But a Card Challenges No. 33

Good Morning Everyone! It's a SPARKLY brand new month and time for a brand new ABAC Challenge. Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments and those that "shared a story through scrapbooking" for Margarets's mini-challenge. Stay tuned for a new "Spotlight and Mini-Challenge" at the bottom of the month at the end of Challenge No. 33.

It's time for a new challenge today here at Anything But a Card Challenges... so get ready to play and have some fun! Kudos to all of the creative gamers who played along with Challenge #32 "Tic...Tac...LOVE". If you missed out on seeing all the amazing submissions... please CLICK HERE to check them out.

The new Challenge... Anything But a Card Challenge #33 - the word "SPARKLE"!! What does the word sparkle represent to you? Sparkle can be a personality trait, or a physical appearance, or an attitude. 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!

Oh Yes! Sparkle for me is all about the Bling!
There was a lot of work go into these. Come on over and check out what I did on my BLOG. But then I decided to create even more sparkle. If you are going to shine do it big time.

I wanted to get as much sparkle as possible into the little wooden word. So there's glitter, glitter, and more glitter. Then there are some mica pieces. And a little bit of rusty pieces to round it all out! Check out my blog for more details!

I promise there is some shimmer here - the closest I can get to sparkle! There's also a little sparkly gem on my Fimo heart. The close-ups on my blog show more.  Please visit my blog for more details!

I have a large stash of glittery Christmas papers and this floral background was one of them. It had the perfect amount of "sparkle" to accompany this amazing quote by Virginia Woolf. I love this sparkly new entry in my art journal. Please visit my blog for more details!


We hope our designers have you INSPIRED to take some time to be creative!! We can't wait to see your creations and we hope that you will join in and share them with us! Stop back next Sunday to see more of our Design Team creations!
