Recipe Challenge at the House of Gilli

Hello everyone and I hope you are having a great weekend!

It’s my turn to show you my creation for our very first challenge at the House of Gilli.

This challenge is to
-Use some form of Sparkle
-Use 3 Patterned Papers
-Use at least 2 dies and/or punches
-You do not have to use a Gilli for this project
BUT IF you use a Gilli you get 2 chances okay ;)
(your entries must follow this recipe to be qualified)

The Gilli that I used is Asian Gilli. Gilli has some fun and imaginative personalities. I am sure you can find your favorite. The whole line of Gilli stamps (designed by anaRy Atelie) are available at StampingScrapping.  StampingScrapping is where I purchase the majority of my art supplies. And they keep adding more. Go check them out. Beware...they are enablers! LOL

The supplies I used are:
Stamps: Asian Gilli, and Anglaise Lace Stamps
Copics: R20, 22, 27, 89; E000, 11; C3, 5, 7, 9
Inks: Memento Lady Bug; Distress Black Soot
Pens: Spica Lipstick, Black; Gelly Roll Clear Start
DP: Cherry Art (I purchased at Michaels or Hobby Lobby)
CS: SU Basic Black, Real Red; Cryogen 80#
Charms/Bling: Asian fan, Asian coin, vine from
Frost Creek Charms; Swarovski Crystals; Stickles: Star Dust
Dies: Spellbinder’s Circle and Eyelet Circles
Flowers: My stash, but I did accent them with
Copics C9 and R27, and Pearl Glimmer Mist

The challenges that I am entering are:
Cute Card Thursday – Shiny Happy Cards
Papertake Weekly – Putting on the glitz
The Shabby Tea Room – Keeping Warm (Week #49)
Stamp Something – Something funky

Thanks so much for stopping by. Now it’s your turn to create with a Gilli (you don't have to use a Gilli stamp to enter this challenge) and enter the first challenge at the House of Gilli. Use the link available on Suzanne Dean’s top blog post.
