Virginia's Take on Glitter

Hello! Are you inspired to add glitter to your project yet?
 December is the perfect month to do so!
 First of all, it is not a party without addition to the TWO Simon Says Stamp $25 gift voucher for this month's challenge, I am pleased to announce that Winnie and Walter
is generously donating a $25 gift card to their store ! We now have 3 prizes!

Thank you SO much, Julie and Shay! Naturally, I want to create a fun, festive and glittery card with one of my favorite stamp sets "My Precious" by Winnie and Walter.
Sparkle and Shine
About this card:
~use glitter embossing powder: do not under estimate those glittery embossing powder. I first embossed the Enchanted Gold Embossing Powder on vellum.
~alcohol inks: some of you might be a bit intimidated by alcohol inks because they are super bright and can be overpowering. BUT if you use just a tiny bit, they are absolutely lovely! In this case, I dabbed the alcohol inks on the back of the vellum and it is "just right".
~be bold with the sentiment: I was just being "silly" creative and used gold thread to wrap up the sentiment. I think it makes a statement and sure adds pizzazz to the design.

As you can see, I am still having fun with this challenge. It is so hard to step down from this challenge blog. I hope that you know that!

Lastly, I want to mention that our previous guest designer Mayuri is teaching a new class "Radiant Stamping" over Craftsy! If you love anything colorful, this is a class that you may want to sign up!
There is still plenty of time to add glitter and join this fun challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
