Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal.

Hello my friends! February went past so fast. It's a new month and that means we have new wonderful stamps to play with.

This month we are featuring five versatile stamp sets.
Two of the sets are perfect for Christmas.
Many of our customers said they promise themselves to make Christmas cards a little bit each month, all year long, but they fail to find the time. So this month's technique kit uses the pretty Red Cardinal drawn by Rosiland Solomon.
The Winter Cardinal stamp set is available by itself on line.
It is also included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

The first of the month also means a new challenge at SNS Creative Challenges where the theme is always 
"Anything Goes with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking."
Five Winners (one for each new stamp set) will be selected by during the Designers Mystery Party. Winners will also get to choose one Glitter and one Embossing Powder to go with their new stamp set.

 I used fabulous Born to Shop #554 stamp to make my shadow box card. You can find full directions of my card here

All the windows are covered with Glossy Accents. The glitter I used is Lacy Lilac. 

All stamping is done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Image is colored with Pro- and Flexmarkers. Sentiment layer is inked with Tea Dye ink and I draw some lines with marker to make it look like a wood sign.

Here's a side view of my card. 
Do you wonder how the Mystery Party works:
On Five of the participating blogs below, a Commenter will be selected to receive the prize
