A Blog Named Hero has a great theme for this month's challenge - GLITZ!!  For me a little glitz goes a long way, but you may use as much or as little as suits your fancy for your card!  I went with another Christmas card for my stash.

The base for my poinsettia is some alcohol inked acetate which I die cut with the layering poinsettia die.  Used some green alcohol inked yupo for the leaves.  I dry embossed the background with the Bold Graphic Confetti die.  Mounted all on an A2 card base, added the little sentiment, a few gold sequins and done!  As always, photographing anything shiny and bright is quite difficult and this was no exception - but that poinsettia really glistens!


Our generous sponsor, Hero Arts, is giving away two gift cards to our winners this month - so be sure to enter by 26 November at hashtag #abnhnovemberchallenge and tag @ablognamedhero.

Thanks for stopping by.
