A Glitter Explosion

Hee!  Hee!  More is more with this card!  This week's Papertrey Ink, Make It Monday challenge is to make glittered die cuts.  Immediately my thought was to use the large rick rack die with graduated colors.  Since my glitter selection is fairly small, so were my options.  The only stamp set that seemed to fit the bill was Fly Away.  I was pretty adamant about making a vertical card.  I wanted visual lines going in different directions.  I resisted putting the clouds on initially, but it just wasn't complete without them.  I would say I'm fairly pleased with this one.  My only question is, if I had to do it again, maybe the smaller rick rack?  Hmmmm.....

Anyway, it just feels great to make a card.  It's been a while!


  1. I like all that glitter! The rick rack glitters co-ordinate well.

  2. Too cute! Love all the glitter. :)


  3. So nice to see you post a card, Shelley :) Loving all the sparkly and the big, puffy clouds are adorable. Great MIM card!

    Trusting all is well with you. Sure you are in full swing at the ball fields. We're into Spring soccer and the craziness of this time of year. On a M-Day production binge this week. Never dull.

    Hugest of hugs to you :)

  4. How did I miss this in my Reader? I love those glittered ric-rac borders! Such a cute design! Hope you're doing well.
