Fusion Challenge - Silver Stars

Ready for a new Fusion Challenge? This one is just bling-a-licous! Is that a real word? I don't know but it sure seems to describe this photo pretty well!  Check it out.. glitter dipped jingle bells, silvery tinsel trim, and silver stars!!  Told you!  

Not feeling so blingy?  That's ok you don't have to use the photo inspiration, you can make a card in any color or theme using the sketch!!  

I wanted to mimic lots of elements of the design like 1.) Stars, 2.) glitter dipped jingle bells, 3.) Eyelet lace, 4.) Sheet music Paper, 5. Big red satin bow!

Something about all that silver glitter told me to make this one a Christmas Card.  My favorite little embellishment lately is slipping a button under raised die cuts.  If you look close you can see a cream colored button just under the bottom of the star.  Buttons just make me happy.  Simple pleasures right?
Here's a list of all the dt members with projects today!

Have I died? Is this Heaven? Glitter dipped jingle bells??? Really? Just when I thought the shiny stuff couldn't be more dazzling, they go and "bling-a-licious" me some more!! Your card has such a classy, retro feel to it. I can see sending this to Mr. Sinatra or Ms Rogers. So wonderful :)
