Charms and Sparkles

I've spent this week catching up on the big holes in my stash. I've finished off the New Baby cards and made a couple that I think can be used for Weddings/Aniversaries/Engagements etc.

I had some off cuts of some glitter card left and was just about to pop them into the drawer when I remembered the sketch this week over at Freshly Made Sketches.

With a little bit of fiddling, I managed to follow the sketch and make another multi purpose celebration card. So well pleased!

This was quick and simple to do and overall I am happy with the result ( and it used up some of those left overs which are beginning to create a mountain).
I used two stitched edge dies for the square and the rectangle -they were both recent bargains at The Works.

Stamped the sentiment ( a freebie from a mag) onto vellum and embossed  with WOW Metallic Platinum.
Two champagne glass charms and a couple of blingy's for bubbles - finished (and all done in less than an hour) and it looks rather good in real life!

Next time could someone remind me how hard glitter card is to photograph - I've made rather a lot of cards using it and they are all going to be a devil to share!

Love the stylish CAS design, and lots of glam on this pretty card. The vellum border with the little charms looks perfect with the stitched glitter panels too. It's a most elegant design, and can be for many occasions. TFS

I love this, so stylish and a great snippets buster! Ahh the joys of photographing glitter card, miri card, acetate and a hundred other things that all look the same colour in real life biut look totally uncoordinated in photos! Oh and square cards that look like rectangles and vice versa. Just as well we love it. Hope you're keeping warm and well x
