Sparkle and Shine - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those played along with last weeks Food for Thought Challenge. This weeks challenge is Sparkle and Shine, the theme is open to your interpretation!

I haven't had a time to play along with the last few 12 tags of 2012, so I combined the December Tag with this weeks Bloggers Challenge, and the Anything Goes with ODBD Stamps Challenge. Not having all the supplies Tim used on his tag, I improvised, using stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Snowflake Sentiments, Sparkling Snowflakes, Snowflake Mini Set, ODBD Custom Snowflake Dies
I used stamps from the Sparkling Snowflakes and Snowflake Mini Set on the tag, stamping in Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments stamped in Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The Snowflake Medallion was created by stamping the 3 largest snowflakes from the Sparkling Snowflake set in Tumbled Glass Ink, then die cutting using ODBD Custom Snowflake Dies.  Once die cut, I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain Ink, and layered the stamped snowflakes on top of each other using dimensionals.  To embellish I added Zva Creative Crystal Flourishes, and some Vintage Seam Binding Dyed with Ranger Distress Stains.

You got me started again, Lisa! I'm a bit chagrined that it's a CASE, but that is what happens with me.
