I don't like GLITTER! It is soooooooooooo messy!!!

That being said, my very good friend, Sweet P, is hosting a Glittery & Glamorous Swap.

I don't like GLITTER... but I joined
(cuz I like Sweet P).

Here's my card:

I don't like GLITTER...
but I kind of like my card!

I wish you could see my card in real life. It SPARKLES! (It must be the glitter... tee hee!)

The background paper is black GLITTER paper.

The train image and sentiment are embossed with a GLITTER-ful Embossing Powder.

The stripe was created with a piece of sticky strip and red GLITTER.

hmmmmmmmmmmmm... I still don't like working with glitter, but I like the results!

Image: Sampin' UP! Happiness Is a Journey
Sentiment: Stampin' UP! Whimsical Words
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Brushed Gold and Real Red and Gina K Pure Ivory
Designer Paper: Colorbok Glitter Paper

This is GREAT Jeanette! Really good idea to put glitter on a sticky strip - much neater than glue:)

As my son would say, Holy Shrimp!!! This is STUNNING!! What a beautifully embossed image (0pps, glittered?) I agree, glitter = a disaster in my house! I have a challenge with it on my cards yet my kids sling it from one end of the craft table, into the carpets, thru the house, out the doors, on the dogs, lol!!!! How can I manage NOT to create a card?! You've certainly given us some inspiration with your beautiful card - Sweet P will just squeal with delight with this little number!! ::: standing ovation! :::

HA!!! I thought that I was the only person who doesnt really like glitter!!! I was thinking that I had to keep it a secret lest others think I am crazy!! LOL Of course I also joined Sweet P's Swap - to stretch myself.
You've given me some good inspiration with this one. Thanks Jeanette!
