Challenge #47: Make It Sparkle!!

Hello Users!

I'm sure more than a few of us are attracted to sparkly things. Whether it's bling, glitter, mists, stones, papers, embellishments or pearls...you must have SOMETHING in your stash to  
Make it Sparkle!!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday January 18, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE047 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration from our new Design Team to get you started: 

Stacey found this old glitter paper stack for her card, along with a glittered white frame. She also added bling that's been right at home in her collection for at least the last year.

Danielle claims she's not a glitter girl, but she sure can use it!! Her gorgeous uses hoarded glimmer mist and silver washi tape from over a year ago (and never used before). Plus, she found some Sassafras paper scraps that might be almost 6 years old!!

Tracy found a lonely piece of white glitter cardstock in her scraps box for this challenge. And those glitter letters? At least 5 years old! The ribbon, ribbon charm and black glitter paper also comes from her scrappy stash. What a great start to your "Using", Tracy! Will you have anything left for the next challenge?

Tammy revved up her Sweethearts cartridge to make this card, adding some bling from her stash and smooch spritz on the envelope to make it special!

Stephanie pulled this black and white patterned paper from a glitter stack that is at least 4 years old. She also used some blue tread from a Sew Easy tool that's barely been used since it joined her craft room. 

Sherri's Christmas themed layout is perfect for this challenge!! The glittery alphas have been in her stash for years and the fabric holly has been waiting to adorn the perfect page for almost two years! Love those shiny doilies!!

Nicole has had a hard time finding the perfect project for these beautiful glitter Thickers...even today's project almost wasn't good enough, but in the end she cracked the package open. And, the clear rhinestones in the corners are so old the adhesive wouldn't stick!!

Heather searched through her stash to find the perfect "shine" for this project and found this paper with gold embossed butterflies, one of the first sheets she bought when she took up cardmaking (about 5 years ago). She accented it with some glitter that had never been opened some ribbon that was re-purposed from Christmas gift wrapping.

And Caroli cut into her Konnichiwa papers from Basic Grey, as well as a sheet of glittery paper for the page title (the black lettering). But the real hoarded item here is the layout from her vacation to Japan...in 2004!!!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
