Suprise! I finished a card!!

Well i finally finished a card...seemed like I just couldn't get the time to sit down and do it! Lots of running around, back and forth, up and down, in and out .... whew! I'm kinda tired! Today I'm going to do nothing. A good day of rest will do me much good!

As you can see by my little flowers, I have been playing in glitter; and let me just say, I will be wearing that blue glitter on my face for a week!! It comes in little tubes and I spilled the tube before I could get it into the container I was going to use and it went everywhere. Another reason why I don't use glitter!!! But I do like the way it looks on these little flowers. The flowers are punched out of parchment paper and then embossed which turns the paper white and also curls the edges up on down. Before embossing I used a little Aleene's Tacky Glue on the edges and dipped in the glitter. You then let it dry and put a little brad in the center to hold it together. My image was stamped on an oval cut with a Spellbinder's die. Words were stamped off kilter on purpose believe it or not. I just wanted it to be different! The vine is my new die from Spellbinders and let me just say I love it. Also the Martha Stewart punch I used on the corners is new too. Woo Hoo 2 new things this month!
Well that is it for me this morning. I'm off to get another cup of coffee and read the Sunday paper! Waiting patiently on my package from Just for Fun Rubber Stamps!!!

I hate using glitter too. But your card came out so beautifully, I think it might be worth the days of glitter-wear!
