Sparkle & Shine

Sparkle & Shine at 365cards this week! Did you notice some sparkle in the Paper Pretties image? Does it looks better close up? I sure do hope you could see the sparkle and shine! It's your choice - use two different techniques/items to create a sparkly/shiny look on your card. 
1. I swear I had used some Ranger Perfect Pearls but the photo taken in the day light does not show the shine.. whoopppsss...
2. The brad I use IS sparkly
3. Well, the star has distress stickles

Thursday's Up! - Wear and Tear

Wear and Tear
This week's sponsor at 365cards is Heidi Stock Digi Design!  Heidi is a former 365 Cards DT member. She owns her own Etsy shop. Do check it out. We had the great pleasure of using digital paper packs to create our cards this week, and you'll have the opportunity to win some paper packs of your very own. It's for a prize of 3 paper pack to one lucky person!!! Again, here is Heidi's Esty shop. Hop on to 365cards, join in the fun and take up the challenges for this week.

The technique this week is wear and tear. I used the overlay black and white paper from 12x12 Starlight collection. The real digi unaltered digi paper is on the backing of the card. 2nd layer is sand, crumpled and inked with some TH tea dye distress ink. The flower is made of thrift shop coffee filter paper punched, and held on to the same digi paper with a brad. I had fun creating this card and hope you would too. Remember wear and tear some parts for your card!

Supplies :
* Digi papers from Heidi Stock Digi Design 12x12 Starlight collection
* Lawn Fawn Sophie's sentiment
* TH Distress ink Tea Dye
* Sentiment was stamped using Staz-on Timber Brown
* Paper Shapers Scallop punch
* Martha Stewart petal punch
