Sing Out My soul!

It feels good to be back doing challenges again. I don't usually miss Bloggers Challenge, but Christmas, grandchildren, and other obligations took up so much of my time.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas! Mine was wonderful. But now it's back to reality.

This week the Bloggers Challenge is sparkle and shine. I know its hard to see sparkle and shine on a scanned image. You'll just have to trust me that there's a lot of sparkle and shine on this card. The cardstock is metallic and the frame around the birds is a combination of rock candy stickles and rock candy dry glitter. Of course the bling ribbon across the top fits the challenge theme as well. All of the stamps are from the Artistic Outpost songbirds sheet. I'm also entering this card in the monthly Artistic Outpost referral challenge. The layout of the card is based on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. The challenge at Cheery Lynn is faux or real lace. I used the Cheery Lynn Dutch doily frame die and the Japanese lace pattern die as my faux lace.

This is a blog hop. Can't wait to see what you create!

I wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year!
