MC Mar/11 - Glitter - A Smile

There were two things I wanted to use on this card and then there was a sketch I thought would work, although it's rare I use sketches, preferring more to just let things evolve, rather than forcing them within set designs. But I guess everyone works differently.

The flower is the latest tutorial on Becca Feeken's blog, so easy, and so impressive.

The glitter rectangles is actually made from Floral wrapping I picked up at my local "M" store. Really pretty stuff, then I added the glitter to it.

Made my own embellishments too, using the Lumina air dry Polymer Clay stuff I recently picked up. I'm going to pick up more of it...

Lots of die cutting, so if you want to see more details, descriptions and closeups, just click on card image. Enjoy

And the theme this week over on Created By Hand and Quietfire Creations is Out like a lamb or Glitter. It's sure evident I didn't use any lambs... BIG GRIN

I'm also using a Quietfire Design quote - such a true sentiment.

And it fits for a few challenges:
