Lucy's Glitter Challenge

Collin is absolutely addicted to he was thrilled with the blog candy package I received from Laura.  How much fun to receive goodies in the mail!  Thanks so much Laura! 

Laura's package also fit in perfectly with Lucy's Challenge...use glitter on your card somewhere...somehow!  It took a few tries for me to like any of the cards I added glitter to!

I think this card would be perfect for a birthday or someone who maybe going through a tough time that you want to encourage to celebrate the good things going on today!  To make the card, I stamped SU Kraft White and then sprinkled the glitter on. I made the flower following Dawn's technique on her blog.  I've made a few of these flowers but had to laugh at Pat's face as he watched me making them.  He watched me for a while and when I showed him the finished product he said, "You know, the lady at the post office smashes your cards down and keeps saying, 'I'm going to have to charge more if she makes these any thicker.'"  Oh well, what's a girl to do!  Finally, I embossed the pink layer with a swirly embossing folder and added some fun buttons from the stash my nana sent me.

What do you think?  Do you like the blue or the pink card better?  Thanks so much Lucy for the inspiration to use some glitter...people might wonder what I've really been doing with all this glitter :)!  Click on the image if you want to see the embossing a little bit better...need to keep working on taking better photos with my camera!

Ingredients:  SU Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Bordering Blue, SU Ribbon, Button Stash, Stamps:  PTI Turning a New Leaf and Mega Mixed Messages

Gosh - they are both so beautiful. Love the embossed strip along the bottom, and of course, your poofy flowers are fabulous. Love them both.
