Happy Thanksgiving & a Limelight Sketch!

Pin It
A quick personal note ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOO!
LOVE YOU!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Wow, what an amazing year, I have so much to be thankful for!
My amazing DH, my wonderful parents, our fabulous church...!
And I'm so very thankful to the Lord for all of his blessings!






While some of us are busy pouring gravy all over our turkey and mashed potatoes, I know there are an equal number of people out there who are pouring over the Black Friday sales ads!
I can hear them shouting "Bring on the sales!".
They must have been listening over at Limelight, because not only do they have some awesome sales scheduled for Black Friday, they also have a challenge focusing on all things black!
How easy is that?! Anything black will do, although, I recommend the Black Magic cardstock, black licorice Pixee Stix glitter, or black fun flock!
If you don't have anything from Limelight, go ahead and play along anyways!

Here are the Details:

**Sketch and Product Challenge using black for Black Friday!

**Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC009

**Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on Mandy's blog by Sunday, November 30th at midnight for a chance to win a Limelight Papercrafts Gift Certificate.



Wellll....as you can see I'm missing the 3rd square in the sketch...I had made all three pieces but they didn't fit!!!!

I used the Dazzling Danglers stamp by TaDa.
I stamped the 'round' ornament in pink all over the pink background piece - which is a sheet from the Basic Grey Sugared 6x6 pad.

I then used a quickie glue pen to adhere black glitter to the ornaments.
There is also a black rhinestone at the top and a clear rhinestone in the middle of each of the ornaments. It is so sparklin' in real life!



I used reversible black/silver ribbon and finished it off with three more black rhinestones in the top left corner.

Go check out the rest of the Limelight Ladies for some more inspiration!!!

wow! this is just stunning! love that ribbon. too funny about the third piece, I ended up having to make my card base bigger just so I could fit mine in. I love how your bow fills that space. great job.
