First of all, I apologize to everyone who's blogs I have not been visiting this week. I've been working extra long hours trying to get our store ready for inventory. I'm absolutely exhausted. And when I am home, its a challenge just to read all the emails I receive, much less visit and comment on blogs. But I promise, I will get to all your blogs soon.
For today's card, I did the JustRite Challenge 'Valentine Love'. The company just started doing challenges, this is their third one, but the first one I've been able to participate in. I think they actually wanted to see a Valentine 'Project', but I've already made all of those because I have to work a month in advance since I sell my creations at a consignment store, so I decided to make a card that could be used for an anniversary or wedding.
I wish you could see this card in person. It is so much prettier in real life. The entire card just SPARKLES! I used the gorgeous new DCWV 'Maribosa' designer paper. The green background paper is 'glitter paper', and the ribbon has a gold sparkly edge, and the butterfly designer paper has gold glitter on it, and I put Stickles on the frame of the sentiment. Its so pretty! So, since you can't see the shimmer, just use your imaginations.
The sentiment and decorative frame are from JustRite, and the sentiment is embossed in clear embossing powder and is up on dimensionals. Do you remember this card HERE? I just found out that it won this week on Paper Craft Planet and is featured in their Newsletter. I am once again their 'Shooting Star'. I was excited to hear that news.
Have a great day! Amy
