PP225: Black Tie Theme Challenge

PP225: Black Tie Theme Challenge

I've been creating cards for challenges today. The card I'm sharing is for The Paper Players Black Tie Theme Challenge #225. You are to create something that has sparkle, shine and/or texture. My instinct was to use some black. I held myself back since I normally use so much black in my cards.  I decided to do red sparkle since that seems to be what I've been doing a lot of with my Christmas cards this year. 

For my card base I used PaperTrey Ink cardstock in New Leaf. The patterned paper is from a paper pad called Timeless Holiday by Craft Smith which I matted with PTI's Pure Poppy. I used a die from Taylored Expressions called Jingle All The Way to diecut my sentiment. I adhered it to PTI's Vintage Cream cardstock. The glitter paper is from Recollections called Christmas Noel. The gemstones are from Hero Arts. 

Over the next few days I'll share other cards I've made for various challenges.

Be sure to stop by and check out all the other beautiful cards in the challenge!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
