Unto you

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built!  We have a new designer joining us this week, so make sure you stop by the blog and give her a warm welcome!  This week's challenge is a Designer's Choice and Laurie has chosen "Glitter".  Who doesn't love glitter, right?  Here is my card for your inspiration:
I was digging through my bits and pieces stash (which I am trying to use up--it will take forever!), and pulling out whatever I thought might work.  I pulled out the snowflake die cut and the blue oval.  And the blue ribbon is one I've had in my stash FOREVER!  I heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder and lined the edge of the oval with a silver sharpie to give it separation from the background.  I laid down some adhesive on the background and sprinkled silver glitter all over it, making sure to burnish it really well.  After I adhered everything together, it still needed "something" so I looked through my embellishments and discovered some rhinestone strips which were perfect for going underneath the oval.  This card is so sparkly and shiny and gorgeous!
 I hope you will play along with us this week (remember that you have all month to play with each challenge); I can't wait to see all the glittery creations!
