Glitter! Glitter! Glitter!

Hey everyone!! Did you have a good Saturday?? Had a full day at the spa today.. My weekend starts tomorrow! Wee!!! :)

When I saw Everything But The Kitchen Sink's Around The House challenge earlier this week, I knew I had to play. I got my notepad and started drawing out how I wanted to do it. Four pages and a couple of days later (HA!), I decided on making a Christmas card using pink as the main color. I couldn't decide on a sketch so, I went through my blog list today and a card by Ms LeAnne at Wee Inklings caught my eye! (She's such an inspiration. Check her out, if you haven't!) It was a card for Just Us Girls Challenge. I immediately loved the sketch! :)

I used two ornaments from TPC Studio's Christmas Glamour stamp set. I stamped them on a piece of cardstock, cut them out, measured and cut the toothpicks to follow the contours and laid them onto the image with repositionable adhesive. I then laid Terrifically Tacky Tape on top of the toothpicks and adhered them onto the cardfront. I peeled off the cardstock, layered some glue on the toothpick ornaments and glittered away! I think I may have fallen in love with glitter! Weee!!! :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this card makes you smile! :) :) Leave a comment. I love reading them!! :)

Stamps: TPC Studio Christmas Glamour, Recollections $ stamp
Paper: PTI Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, g.c.d. studios Pink Medallions dp
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown
Other: Martha Stewart Rose Quartz glitter, TTT, Recollections rhinestones, Michael's grosgrain ribbon
