TIME OUT Challenges #19 Embossing & Optional Twist Sparkle

* This is my 1st post of the day, be sure to pop back at 9am for the FULL reveal of the Uniko Studio Christmas Release *


It's time for the next challenge over at TIME OUT Challenges! This fortnight is a theme challenge, the theme being...

 Embossing with the optional twist of Sparkle

We have a FABulous sponsor for this challenge... Avocado Arts. For those who use the optional twist with your entry you will be in the chance of winning a prize from the sponsor.

Here is my take on the theme...

How about some sparkly snowflake decorations?! For this card I use a trio of snowflakes from Stunning Snowflakes, the bows are from Label Love: Birthday and the sentiment from Pure Florals: Poinsettia.

I heat embossed the snowflakes with stardust embossing powder and added rhinestones to add the sparkle.

This fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Lesley, be sure to stop by Lesley's blog Always Playing With Paper to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back soon with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today.
