Some glitter to bring a smile

I wanted to make something bright and sunshiny today - this isn't really bright, or sunshiny, but there must be sunshine on the way, because there's a rainbow. I used the Ornate Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, along with WOW glitter embossing powder, Zig Markers, a cloud nesting die from Hero Arts and a sentiment from Mama Elephant. 
Even though there's no direct sunshine on this card, and the colours are very pale, there is glitter. LOTS AND LOTS OF GLITTER.
I discovered that glitter embossing powder doesn't resist water as well as traditional embossing powder - you live and learn. But I still like all the glittery goodness, even if this wasn't actually the look I was going for.

I'll be sharing this at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Clean and Simple.

  2. Now I'm humming that tune over and over. That is perfectly fine with me since I love it and your card. I'm sure up close and personal it is way more sparkly and seems the perfect sentiment for sending to those needing a little sparkle and shine.
