Add Sparkle and a Stamped Gift Idea

There is a new challenge today at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the theme to play along with this fortnight is SPARKLE.  This is such an easy challenge so there really is no excuse not to play along.  Don't forget to use your cute StampFairy digis though.

Here's my card, with added sparkle.  I've used glitter on the snow and igloo, I've added some glitter to the flowers, and there is also gold glitter in the gorgeous holly ribbon.

I've also decorated a matching tissue pouch, which was made by my uber talented Etsy friend Sandy at HugsAndHolidays.  She sent me these little pouches to decorate in 3 different colours, and I'm sharing pics of the first one today.  She made the plain pouch and added the pink spotty edge, so I've used that edging colour as my inspiration.  I used the same pink spotty pattern for the backing paper on my card, inside and out, and then I decorated the pouch using a little holly rubber stamp, and coloured the images in with my markers, and added red liquid pearls for the berries.  I therefore used a gorgeous holly ribbon on the card to match it.  Here's a pic of the pouch:

Don't forget to pop on over to Hugs And Holidays to see the fab fabric items Sandy has made. Her attention to detail is amazing and her items are really high quality.  I'll be posting more pics of more of her things that I've decorated in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for more gift ideas!!!
