Sparkle and Shine. Starlight Thinlits. Staci Rivera SU StampinUp

When I thought of sparkly and shiny projects the first idea that came to me was a Christmas tag. I decided to stay with silver, gold, and white throughout for an elegant look.

I paired the silver and gold foil sheets for the main star.

Other elements that give this project sparkle- silver glitter ribbon from the Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack, gold metallic thread, and Metallic Enamel Shapes. I also used the wink of stella brush (clear) to add a little sparkle to some of the stars on the tag base. The tag base is made from the Fancy Frost Specialty paper.

For the last bit of sparkle, I dangled a charm from the ribbon. The charms will be available in the occasions catalog that will be released next month. They are called Falling In Love Embellishments. I really look forward to the release of the occasions catalog.
