Hark The Herald Angels Sing

HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY TO ALL OF YOU!  For all of you who don't live in the United States and know about Black Friday, it is the day retail business count on every year to help them go from being in the red (losing money) into the black ( making a profit)!  The stores offer all kinds of special sales and open in the middle of the night to lure shoppers out for big bargains.  People go crazy and can get very aggressive trying to get that special deal.    It is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year.  I don't like shopping in crowds so  I have never been shopping on Black Friday.   My precious, sweet granddaughter Kaylee talked me and her father into it this year.  Someday I will find enough will power to tell her no, but it was not today.  LOL  So when this posts, I will probably be in my bed catching some zzzz'x from my all-nighter.  I'll let you know if we got any real bargains or not in my post tomorrow.

Now on to my beautiful sparkly card.  Isn't that the prettiest ribbon you have ever seen?  It was a "have to have" from Michaels.  I built my entire card around using that ribbon.  I just love all it's sparkly goodness.   I colored my Magnolia image called Bubble Blower with my Copics and she just had to have some sparkly Stickles on those wings to match the gorgeous bow, now didn't she?  My beautiful DPs are from a pad of Authentique papers.  The silver glitter mat was from AC Moore and the blue card stock is Stampin Up.  I punched the snow flakes and popped on some pearls and and one amber gem.  I tell you when you are working with all these beautiful elements, you just can't go wrong.  They just all fall into place for you.

This card is for the Totally PaperCrafts Christmas challenge this week.  Now that you have seen my card, why not pop over to the Totally PaperCraft blog and see all the delightful creations my teamies have to show you!  There are some really talented ladies in that team.  I am so happy I was chosen to be a part of it.
