Hot Mess Success - Take 27

It's the 12th of October, time to get messy. (insert deer-in-the-headlight look) As you likely recall from previous 12ths, I am not one who likes messes. Not one bit. BUT a challenge is only a challenge if it stretches you, and I'm up for the Hot Mess Success Challenge. 

Barb, Carol, Darlene, Kelly, Terry and I create cards for the Hot Mess Success challenge each month and share them on the 12th. 

It's Anything Goes - as long as there is something messy involved.

I tried to go for a shiny grunge look this month - I'm not sure I succeeded. I used Picket Fence Daffodil Yellow Paper Glaze with the My Favorite Things Sun Rays stencil for some shine. Once it had dried I ruffed it up a bit and then sprayed it with Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray.

I added a sentiment from Unity Stamps and one embellishment to finish up my card.

Be sure to check out the other Hot Mess gals blogs, too, to see their cards (you'll be WOW'd!)... 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
