Playing with Glitter at Freshly Made Sketches

G'day again,

Just a quickie to show another Christmas card, this time using the sketch from Jennifer T over at Freshly Made Sketches:

I'm not normally a 'glittery' kind of girl - using it reminds me of craft sessions at primary school when I got more glitter over my sticky hands than on the actual project I was making. But I wanted to see what this WMS bauble stamp would be like using sticky embossing powder and fine glitter. It came out ok but I'm not sure how it will go once it's stuffed into an envelope. I suspect when it arrives at its destination, there will be more glitter in the envelope than on the actual card!

I'm also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the challenge is to use rubber or clear stamps.

Thanks for stopping,

Claire x
