Glitter is Glam!

This week is going WAY too fast!!! We just got back from a couple of days away. Yesterday, we went snow tubing in the mountains. It was so much fun!! My body is revolting, though. I have been eating and drinking wayyyyyy too much. Ugh. It will be nice to get back into my healthy routines. :)

I have a card to share with you today that meets several challenges. I have to say I love how it turned out!




First, I was finally able to do one of Cath's Moxie Fab World challenges. Being off this week gave me the chance to do it. The challenge calls for using glitter in an out of the box manner. I painted a doily with Mod Podge and added German Glass Glitter to it. I love how it looks. IRL, this card is super sparkly! I also used glitter for the flower center. I die cut a circle and glittered that as well. The paper is Pink Paislee, the tulle is Glitz, the flower center is Prima and the rubon is Hambly.

This card also fits Mona Pendleton's CR84FN8 challenge. Here is the inspiration.



Finally, I was inspired by the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 28. This is another challenge I've been dying to do! I can't wait to get my first shipment of stamps to participate in the next one. :)

Well, that's it for now. I have to go and unpack all of the stuff we brought home from our trip.

Thanks for stopping by!
