Glittery Thanks

I made this card for a Thank You swap in which I'm participating. I used the Burnished Velvet technique to cover the DP with glitter. I'm not sure that it was such a good idea. I made this card over a week ago and the baby is still getting the occasional glitter on his face from my clothes. Thankfully DH finds this amusing. I was originally trying for a clean and simple look but somehow the card got away from me.

This card definitely fits with the Paper Sundae's Challenge of "A Glittery Spring". You couldn't get more glittery than this. "Dazzle Us" is the topic at Fussy and Fancy Challenges. My flowers will also meet the "Springtime" is the challenge for A Spoonful of Sugar. The Cute Daisy May Challenge is "Bright and Cheery Colours" this week - orange and pink are definately bright and cheery!


Stamps: All Year Cheer

Cardstock: Whisper White, DP from Costco

Accessories: Dimensionals (to pop up the sentiment), pale pink rhinestones, white prisma flowers, dazzling diamonds glitter, pink ribbon from Michaels

Techniques: Burnished Velvet
