Twinkle Twinkle... and a bit of shine for TioT's

The last challenge theme for this year at

Twinkle Twinkle
We have given everyone lots of choices
stars /sparkles/ glitter/ something shiny and we are sure there will be other things you could use.
Please pop over to see what the girls have been making.

I would have to say that shiny things are not the easiest to get a good photograph.
So what did I use... The main image is a piece of a torn napkin, sprinkled with glitter.
Layered onto a piece of silver mirri card [yes it looks gold in the photo]
The actual card has a snowflake pattern. [printed from the computer].
The word panel was embossed and then rubbed over with silver gilding wax.

Thank you for calling in to see me today,
your comments are always appreciated.

She was a beautiful girl and much deserved to be remembered in such a shiny and bright way. Thanks for bringing her back for one last look at her this year. I know how much she meant to you.
