Hello!  At 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we’re closing out the month with stash challenge week, where we invite our challenge participants to use particular items from their crafting stash to create a Christmas or wintry card.  This time it’s a double item find – diamonds and pearls.  OK, so we honestly don’t expect anyone to actually use real diamonds, but rhinestones make a perfect substitute for them.

I’ve decided to use one of my favorite Christmas themed digital images, of Rhubarb the teddy bear decorating his Christmas tree.  I’ve used rhinestones and pearls to cover up the ornament shapes in the image.  I also added a star-shaped brad to the top of the tree.  The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn stamp.

The layout for this card is Splitcoaststampers.com sketch challenge #507.  However, I can’t share the card on the site there yet because it just might be giving you a sneak peek of one of the SCS Hope You Can Cling To challenges coming up in the month of October!  😉

Now it’s your turn to show us how you can make your card sparkle and shimmer!  If you’d like some more inspiration, be sure to see what the rest of the 52{C}CT design team has made.  Then share your card with us, linking it at the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, October 3.  We’d love to have you join us!
