Merry Monday: Christmas Lights & Glitter

This week's challenge at the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge is Christmas Lights & Glitter.


As luck would have it, I saw the challenge right after I brought the mail in with a package of new dies including Paper Smooches Holiday Lights!!

I love these funky little lights.  I've seen a lot done with them by other cardmakers - patterned papers, little snowflakes in each one, a sponged glow behind each light.  I'm looking forward to playing with them some more!!

I hate iridescent sequins - at least for photography. The sequins above are red, gold and green - the one is really not pink. I'm not sure this photo is any better. The one sequin looks more gold now but the bottom sequin looks blue!  Oh well - they look just fine in real life.

SUPPLY LIST

The red is Stampin' Up Poppy Parade; the aqua is Coastal Cabana. These are two colors that will never leave my collection!
