Creative Moments Challenge – add some sparkle

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Josh 1:9

For Creative Moments new challenge, I have created a card using a dragon digistamp from our sponsor Bugaboo.  To meet the Glitter & Sparkle challenge I have added Debbi Moore glitter – yellow to the balloon, blue to the hat and green to the dragon.  The number 3 was a silver glitter sticker, coloured with a Spectrum Noir and the sentiment is from Hunkydory.


I’ll be entering this little chap into these challenges: – anything goes – anything goes – it’s a boy thing – birthday time – so sweet – one for the boys – anything goes – fairytale – anything goes – no designer paper

Wee boy

Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

Philippians 2:14-16 NKJV

Today’s card ismade with a Wee stmpsimage and NitWits backing card with the corners punched.  Sometimes we need cards that are definitely not for girls!
