Twinkle All The Way

Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans!

Thursday means the weekend is almost here and it's my turn to post a card for you.

Today I am sharing "Getting Spruced Up" and the sentiment "Twinkle All The Way" from High Hopes Stamps. This image just makes me smile - the first time I saw it I thought it looked like our penguin friend was doing a photo bomb but I think he is just getting ready to decorate his tree. 

I used this month's challenge sketch for my card layout - but shhh - don't tell the boss I forgot to add my tag.. our secret okay? I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers and cut it out using a stitched oval die. I used a smaller oval die to cut out my sentiment. I chose my paper from an older Echo Park collection called Holly Jolly Christmas - I liked the non traditional colours in this paper pad. 
To add some sparkle I added some star brads from my stash and I have a new addiction - Nuvo Crystal Drops. I added it in tiny drops to my corners and to the stars on the sentiment and to the trim on his hat. 
Nuvo drops let you fill in spaces or make your own enamel dots in whatever size you want - how cool is that!
