Simon Says .........Bling it On!

Hi and welcome to another week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Because next Wednesday is Christmas, this challenge will continue for TWO weeks this time, finishing on New Year's Day.  And there will be TWO $50.00 vouchers given away!  We wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

This week our theme is Bling it On!  Anything sparkly is what we're looking for: glitter, gems, Stickles, glimmer sprays, you get the idea!  The Design Team is using Simon exclusives this week, and of course we'd love to see you using them, too, but it isn't a requirement to play along.

I used the Simon exclusive Merry Christmas die and thought it would be fun to make a big ornament to wish you all a Merry Christmas!  I first cut out a circle with a circle die from a scrap of Hero Arts Pool designer paper, then die-cut my sentiment from it.  Then I backed it with a piece of red glitter paper.  My card base is another Hero Hues designer paper, this time in Earth.  To that I attached 3 sprigs of Impression Obsession's Pine Branch die, and then hung my ornament with some Doodlebug Ladybug Doodle twine.  And to add a bit more glitz I used a hole punch to punch out some circles of red glitter paper to use as berries on my branches.

Don't forget, there are TWO chances to win 1 of Heidi's $50.00 gift vouchers this week, and you have 2 weeks to play!

This is so clever how you created a Christmas tree branch and ornament with the different dies. The color scheme is very refreshing too. Merry Christmas!
