Today's challenge is "Sparkle & Shine", what came to my mind was glistening snow. So I chose "Snowman Snowflakes" from the Bugaboo Store.
To give my card lots of sparkle and shine I brushed "Star Dust" stickles on my background layer (embossed with Cuttlebug "Snow Flurry" folder) and the flurry die cut with an old paint brush. I had to put my layer under a book to flatten it out after it dried, since Stickles is a wet application, it warped it a little.
Be sure to clean your brush afterwards, Stickles is a glue product. I picked up a great tip years ago when I painted with acrylic paints. I bar of Ivory soap works great to clean your craft brushes.
To top it off, I applied some snow drops with "White Blizzard" Nuvo Glitter Drops.
