Hi everyone!! How is 2011 going so far? :0)
The last Moxie Fab World Challenge that Cath put out was to use glitter on a project - and she got our mojo flowing with some totally gorgeous inspiration - in this "Glitter is Glam" post ... ouch - what a tough act to follow!! Hmmmm. Think, think, think ....
About a year ago Heather Pulvirenti posted a gorgeous card where she used Diamond Dust instead of glitter on a card .... it's like glitter - with a difference! So I took my cue from Heather for this challenge too :0)
The jar says to use on "styrofoam balls to create frosted ornaments, artificial fruits and flowers for a 'sugared' look" ... and you know - it really *DOES* look like sugar, LOL! It twinkles just like sugar crystals too!
The style of this card is totally inspired by Betsy Veldman - and started with the patterned paper. It's from My Mind's Eye's Fine and Dandy line, and is called 'Tickled Pink'. I thought of Betsy IMMEDIATELY when I saw it. It really should be called "Fine and Betsy" or something, doncha think?
The little Banner Border die cut poking out at the bottom of the frame was a happy crafting moment - I discovered that those little borders fit perfectly into this "Framed" stamp image - and thought that this one looked like a little tablecloth or napkin poking out of the frame :0)
So there it is. I had so much fun thinking this one through and putting it together! Thanks for the challenge Cath - and thanks to everyone who pops by!
Have an awesome day Peeps!
