Sparkle and Shine Challenge Twenty Three: Sponsored by Create A Smile

Hello and welcome back to the Sparkle & Shine Challenge! 

Audrey here.....

Before we get to the new challenge details, I wanted to share something with all of you.  It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that the founder of Sparkle and Shine, Angel, has suffered a terrible loss.  Her husband passed away last week after a brief illness.  He leaves behind not only Angel, but their two young sons.  A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help the Johns family.  Please keep them in your thoughts as they adapt to the changes that they have been faced with.  I know that Angel will appreciate it.

Ok, onto our new challenge!

We are excited you are here and hope that are inspired! 

For this challenge we are sponsored by the amazing Create A Smile Stamps! The winner of our challenge will receive a $25 gift card to the online store and will be asked to be our Guest Designer for next month.
