Tilda Sparkles

Hi All for another Wonderful Wednesday!  Today I’ve chosen a Magnolia Stamp called Tilda Sparkles.   P1010141 copy
A very dear friend is having a Birthday near the end of the month and I decided to do another “book card”.   
P1010144 copy

While we were away at Christmas I found some Hershey Nuggets (which I couldn’t find for my other Christmas book cards ….grrrr).  To dress the nuggets, I made a wrapper for each of them by using a scalloped border punch, distressing the edges and adding a glittered snowflake (randomly).  P1010148

Here is a close up of  Tilda Sparkles.
Supplies used:  Copic Xpress It Blend Cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Copic Markers, TH Antique Linen Distress Ink, TH Stormy Sky Distress Ink (still my fave), Zig 2-way glue pen, Glitter Ritz "Sand" and Glitter Ritz “Cool Highlights” , Flowers from OCS, MS Border Punch, SU Border Punch, Paper from Stash, SU Snowflake die, Pearl Snowflakes from stash.
My friend has a sparkling personality so I wanted to give this card lots of sparkle – and sparkle it does!  () 
I have made a special envelope box for this – and it will be hand delivered!
I'm entering this card into the MDUC Challenge

Have a wonderful day – take time to create.  ~ Rubber hugs ~

WOW I LOVE IT! I have such a hard time finding nuggets to wrap. It's almost impossible!! What a pretty card and the book card looks fabulous. They're tricky aren't they? I just love how you colored up her skirt with the extra yelloe. GREAT idea!
