This week's One Layer Wednesday, hosted by Karen at Snippets, is Sparkle and Shine:
Sparkle and Shine- create a card with something shiny or a bit of bling on it.
And this week's Less is More challenge is to add sparkle in honour of guest designer Gillian:
The Paper Players challenge is Evergreen:
For the card, I stamped and masked the trees from Treemendous by Blonde Moments (Dyan Reaveley) then sponged Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Inks onto the background and spritzed with water for snow. I used Crystal and Turquoise Stickles and stamped the sentiment in blue.
My advent village contains four different styles of house and this is the smallest.

I decided that No.2 Blue Street could have a sloping roof, for no other reason than I just could. I painted a layer of gesso on each of the Blue Street houses, then a layer of white acrylic paint, and some of the houses warped a little bit as you can see on No.1 to the left.
