Sparkle along with us at Basic Grey Challenges

Happy Saturday - love it when Saturday rolls around!!  And, only one more full week at work and then we're off to the Big Apple for 5 days !! Still, I can't let the excitement ratchet up too highly at the minute, still lots to do between times, including telling you about our new challenge at Basic Grey Challenges, which is Sparkle!
I've used one of my favourite Saturated Canary digi stamps - Cerridwen and teamed her with some fabulous papers from the Nook and Pantry Basic Grey pad. The doily shaped diagonal strip is also from the pad but I cut it out from a patterned sheet in the set. 
Of course, I've tried to Christmasify it, so the sparkle requirement was perfect.  The smaller shaped layer behind the image is glittered paper, the ribbons shimmer and sparkle like no-one's business and the green diamante  drops are glistening away! The little gold discs are from a length of Christmas decoration that I have hoarded (they're are actually on their own ribbon but I used them separately here). The sentiment is a Cat's Life Press stamp. 
We have our regular sponsor with us today, Simon Says Stamp, who are again offering an awesome $25 voucher to spend in their online store. Just remember to use a Basic Grey product on your card and the voucher could be yours!

The Basic Grey girls have made some wonderfully sparkly creations, this week so have a peek here if you need any inspiration to get your mojo in gear!!

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
PaperCrafting Journey - Add some Bling 
Simply Create - Anything Goes
Divas By Design - Anything Goes

Have a wonderful weekend!
