Yesterday I sent a bunch of boxes to my sister in Texas, filled with school supplies, games, puzzles, work books and other stuff she can use in her 3rd grade classroom.  She  is a teacher, and can use all the help she can get.  I guess it's no secret I like to find goodies at yard sales, and scored big for her this summer.  So, to announce the arrival of her packages, I decided to make a card with these presents on it.  The boxes I sent are all brown and drab, but I included a bright green one on the card, since this is her favorite color. The background was debossed (by accident).

I was inspired to add a little sparkle by Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Make it Sparkle and Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog.  I used Stickles Rock Candy on my bows and added some bling from my stash.

Products used:  cardstock, Distress Inks, Stickles (Ranger), bling from stash, pop dots,  Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Die, and Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I would like to enter this card in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Make it Sparkle and Sweet Stamps Challenge #181 Bling.
