She says we've got to hold on to what we've got... 'cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not...

Happy Thursday, everyone out there in blog land! This week has seemed to fly by, or is it just me?

Last night I had a little bit of stamping time, so I decided to do Michelle's What's Up Wednesday challenge, which was to use sparkle or bling on your creation. Um, hello? That's every card I make! *grin* So here's my card:
I pulled out the image from Peppermint Cats, stamped it in Brilliance Black on Kraft cardstock and then colored it with my Prismacolor Pencils & Odorless Mineral Spirits. Darn you, Paula! I had to dust them off! *wink* I really love how it turned out, though, if I do say so myself.

I had intended to combine this challenge with yesterday's sketch challenge on SCS, but it just didn't work out that way. After adding a black strip, I embossed the Kiwi panel with my Snowflake embossing folder, then layered it across my card base. I didn't have room for the sentiment in the Peppermint Cats set, so I grabbed the sentiment from A Scarf for Three and it fit perfectly! The left side seemed nekkid then, so I added a row of black brads and finished my card off with Diamond Stickles on the stars & brads. Gotta love the bling!

Ok, one more thing before I go...and this is HUGE!
