SSIC Sparkle

This week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us by the ever sweet Miesje, who has chosen:

"You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot."
Matthew 5: 13

Miesje's challenge is all about Sparkle - add some sparkle to you card.

I have recycled a card that I was given a few years ago, how pretty are those pansies.  I added some sparkle to them using 3D Kindy Glitz.  My bling is from Want2Scrap and is designed by NinaB Designs.

This card is for the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - L … Lace

Pattie's CreationsWeek 1, Summertime
Phindy’s Place - something beginning with your initials (lovely lace)
Crafty Creations - Free For All
Penny's Paper-CraftyAnything Goes + Blog Hop
Ruby's RainbowEmbossing
