Sparkle & Shine

                    Design Team member Mervi challenges us at Allsorts  to create some

                                              *** Sparkle & Shine ***

                     A lovely set called Afternoon Tea by Rare Earth is the prize this week.

I decided to keep with the autumn/thanksgiving theme. All those beautiful colors and leaves are my favorites and I just won't start  winter/Christmas cards until November. 

The back panel is a piece of copper shimmer card stock embossed with a woodgrain folder. The leaves (Gina K Designs, Autumn Silhouettes) were embossed with both gold and copper powder and fussy cut.  The sentiment is an older one from Papertrey Ink. For even more sparkle, I added some gold and copper sequins.  The flap of the envelope was embossed with woodgrain as well.  The shine is really bright in person!!

            I hope you will find some shiny, sparkly things in your craft room and join us at Allsorts!
