Today's fun challenge over at Squigglefly is SFC4813

Add SPARKLE to your card/project.

Well, I have to say, I had SO MUCH FUN creating with these cute kids
and their 'favorite' snowman!  This image was created by Cheryl Grant Alger and is called "SNOW MUCH LOVE" ... to be released Dec. 7th at the Squigglefly Store.

I've turned to my trusty Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring today.
My background paper is from the new DCWV 12x12 Winter Solstice Stack and 1/2 the sheets have FOIL which helps give that extra holiday sparkle and shine!  Of course, it wasn't enough 'sparkle' for me, so I got out the 'Waterfall' Stickles and went the whole way around the background panel.

AND, if that wasn't enough, I added 'sparkly snow' all over my image with a Quickie Glue Pen and Art Deco Glamour Dust.  It sure sparkles pretty now!!!

Another new image I used is my beautiful sentiment which was created by Elizabeth Kushner.  This image will also be released on Dec. 7th.

A few additional challenges:

I hope you'll come share your SPARKLY creations with us this week at Squigglefly!
AND, if you are in need of more inspiration, be sure to check out
the amazing creations from my teammates!

Hope to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by today ... 
I'll be back shortly with my project/tutorial for the 
Crafty Secrets December Linky Party/DT challenge.  
As always . . .

Darlene this is so cute! I love how you added the snow with the glue pen and glitter - it not only adds sparkle but great texture! I also really like how you cut around the sentiment. Great coloring too!
