Hello there!
Today is our first challenge of the year at
and our hostess is Terri and she has chosen the theme of 
'Make It Sparkle'.

I have been trying my best to use up some of my
things just 'laying' around my craft room 
and one thing is a huge stack of pre-cut and scored card stock bases.
That is where my project began....a 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 card ready to go!

I embossed a panel with tiny hearts EB folder,
then stamped my 'Sparkle' sentiment on top.

The glittery heart was cut using an Impression Obsession 
flower heart die,
I added a few gems for even more  'sparkle'.
I also used a Starburst gelly roll pen all over the card front.

Another goal of mine for 2019 was to finish the insides of my card...
and I did!!!
(though I didn't take a photo of it)

Now how about you pop on over to 
The Sisterhood and see all the 'sparkle' goodness
my 'Sistahs' have created!!

Entering the following challenges:
Daisy Chain .... Add some Sparkle (m)
Ellibelle's Crafty Wed. challenge ... Sparkle N Shine (m)

Ohhh, the sparkle! Gosh, it's pretty! I love the cute card size, and way to go using some of those things laying around. We all need to keep encouraging each other this way. The embossing is so perfect with the die cut heart, as though it's sort of nesting in them. Really love this, Diane!
