Decking the Halls

     I love all the Fancy Sunbonnet images from Bugaboo Stamps and this one is the freebie last Friday so I was delighted to use it for Day 4 of the Christmas-in-July, week-long, daily challenges at Catch the Bug.  I've managed to play each day so far (having missed a few days that last two years they had this) and today is a Bingo Challenge.  I used Sparkle/ Bugaboo image/ Ribbon.

     I colored with ProMarkers and added glitter to the snowflakes, ornaments, stars, and to the holly and berries on her bonnet.  I die cut the image with a stitched, scalloped die from Memory Box.

     I found embossed, sparkly, striped paper in my Christmas stash, cut it with a rectangle die from Spellbinders, and added it to a green card front.  I wrapped red snowflake ribbon around the card front and then layered on the image piece.  I tied a triple loop bow using a strip of cellophane paper and my bow maker.  Finally, I added three little sparkly candy canes.  This one definitely sparkles!
