January 1 Challenge:

New Years Day always means a bright shiny start to a new year. So your Challenge is to use...



BLING!

Some suggestions:
glitter - try glittering a piece of floral wire or even a twisty from the bread sack! Stamp an image, cut it out, paint with glue and add glitter... any shape is just waiting for glitter!

gemstones - any color/ shape/ size make great flower centers, accenting swirls

Silver/ Gold Chenille stems or wired Christmas ribbon

Stickles! Outline a stamped shape, color in part of an image or just a few well-placed dots.

And if you've not seen the book Delight in the Details I highly recommend it. And although I can't picture a Kindle version doing this book justice, if you'd like to check it out first... the 'borrowed' Kindle edition is FREE to Amazon Prime Members.
I need to do something special for my sister Teresa's b'day the 15th.. a wrapped white chocolate bar.. I gotta beable to bling that up!
