Celebrate with Birthday Bling

This week so many people around the world took time to celebrate the beginning of a new year. In my family we always had a big celebration when anyone had a birthday. It was time to make them feel special and loved. We have two birthdays in our family this week, so I decided to focus on birthday celebrations with Sparkle and Shine! Since I often make crafts with earthtone colors but rarely use glitter, I wanted to see how those colors looked with a little sparkle. Here's one of the cards I made using shiny ribbon, a giant glitter brad, a butterfly with sparkles, and flower and leaves with glitter. To go with the earthy colors, I dry embossed leaves on the brown cardstock.



I want to thank so many for challenging me to get out of my rut and use more glitter and shine! I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
ABC (All Beautiful Cards) Challenges #10 - New Year Sparkle (any theme-birthday+sparkle)
ABC Challenge - E, Embossing

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Matthew 5:16
