Just a quick attempt..

at this week's DCM mid week dare...
The dare is simply a word. "SPARKLE"
With this word we are free to interpret as we wish.
This is just a quicky as I aren't too sure I have much time for anything else until later in the week, & I do like to take part. I can think of someone who will really love this card as it features something close to her heart..hmm wonder what that is??? I've been asked to make a card & it has to be kept under wraps as it is for someone for Xmas, but that certain someone reads my blog. Can't say more than that but it is special & it isn't a Christmas card.

This is made of some pearlised purple card. The background paper is from a CD.
The botle & glass were cut from baby pink card & some more paper stuck on to look like the contents. I have written the words Sparkle, Fizz & Pop on the background. Using my hole punch (just an ordinary stationers punch) I punch some silver pieces & also stuck on some star gems.
I didn't want to overload the design any further for fear of overkill!!!!!!!!!

Paula - what a fantastic card and such a good interpretation of the word Sparkle - I love it :-)

Love your Xmas cards too - I sat down on Sunday afternoon to make some Xmas cards and didn't make one single card - I had really bad carder's block :-(

Hoping to try again soon - if my inspiration comes back! LOL
