All That Glitters Is Not Gold! - Daring Cardmakers Challenge DT

Happy Friday!

I'm all excited as it's the first time I set a challenge on the Daring Cardmakers!  Of course, it wouldn't be a challenge for me unless it had had some bling and sparkle in it would it?  So, I went with a glitter theme - use as much as you can and make it sparkle!

I decided to make an unconventional wedding card.  I recently bought a new Dovecraft sentiment stamp that I was itching to use so I heat embossed it in black glitter embossing powder to begin with.

I used glitter washi tape in different colours and widths and die cut flowers from glitter card, using my beloved Fiskars heart punch for the black glitter hearts.

It's been a glorious couple of days weather wise and although it's wet and miserable today at least it's not cold.  I, on the other hand, have been suffering with a cold - thank goodness for the cold and flu pills!

Hope you'll join in with the challenge HERE and have a wonderful weekend!

Products Used:
Tonic Nuvo Embossing Powder
Versamark Ink Pad
Dovecraft Painted Blooms die set
Dovecraft Sentiment stamp
Trimcraft First Edition Sweet Nothings paper pad
Fiskars medium heart punch
All cardstock and adhesive from Stix 2 Anything
Everything else from my stash
