life is sweet...

Hello friends!!  Happy new year!!!  Popping in with a card that I made for the current Make It Monday - A la Carte, as well as AAA Cards challenge - A Touch of Gold.  For the Make It Monday challenge I decided to go with Dawn's glitter frames technique.  I had wanted to try it when she originally posted the technique, but wasn't able to find the time before the challenge ended.


I decided to use my Sweet Life stamps and matching dies.  My layout is basically a copy of Dawn's.  Instead of creating the frame using gold glitter I opted to use a pretty glitter from Art Glittering Systems called Ultra Fine Blue Rain.  I stamped the roses using two shades of pink and then added the final layer of the rose using Delicate Golden Glitz ink.  I have included a close up shot because the gold is a little difficult seeing otherwise.  It looks very pretty in real life.

 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by...
