Sparkle or bling challenge at Winter Wonderland

Good morning all

We have  a new Christmas challenge starting at 

Winter Wonderland

the theme is 

Sparkle or bling

I decided to create a page in my art journal
 because I  was totally inspired by this lovely image that I got to choose from our sponsor 

Called Winter Wonders
available HERE

our sponsor this week is 

Helen Niles foto.

I really enjoyed creating this page.  I love just being messy and the result of having another page in my journal when I've finished, it's a different feeling to making  just another card

This is what i did....

Assorted stamps from MFT, Leonie Pujol and Crafty individuals

Page coloured with TH distress inks and sparkle pens

Hope you'll join in with us this week

I always love these type of simple little images for Christmas cards
