Sparkly Menorah

There were several challenges this week for sparkly, blingy, glitzed out creations. I saw this idea in a magazine (can't for the life of me remember which one) and knew I wanted to make a Hanukah card for a friend. I glitzed it up by using glittered cardstock for the base, shimmer cardstock for the star 'flames', and pearlescent white for the menorah. The photo didn't capture the sparkle, but it's there! (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

I flipped the sketch upside down for my card.


365 Cards Day 283 ~ Pick 5 (Have someone else pick 5 things from your stash to put on your card – can use more, but have to have the 5 on it) My husband thought he was tricking me up by handing me a bunch of ribbon tails. Ha! He forgets he's married to a master crafter. :o)
365 Cards Day 242 ~ Ribbon Frenzy (use 7 ribbons) I manged to use even MORE!
Crazy for Challenges #13 ~ Punch Happy I used a star punch to create my candle flames.
Pile it On #27 ~ Tinsel Town: Use glitter I used glitter paper for the base and the center star.
PaperPlay Challenge #45 ~ Movies & Books Use a movie or book for inspiration. My card fits in perfectly with Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights.
