It's Got Glimmer and Glitz - A Mixed Bunch and Loving Thoughts, Too

Lots of glimmer and glitz on this card.  In fact, when I was given this card, I said, "This card is a Wow!"  That made Christine (the maker of the card) very happy.  She went around telling a few people that she had a "Wow" card.  Cuz she did.
 It took quite a while for Christine to make these cards, and she had never done a swap before -- this was her first Convention.  She was afraid her card wouldn't be nice enough.  

Whoa!!  No worries there, that's for sure!
 Can you see how it sparkles?  Look at all the colors under that shimmer . . . it has markers and Dazzling Diamonds with double-sided tape to get all that glimmer on the card with the Dazzling Diamonds.  She finished it all off with a fixative to keep it in place.
Here's what Christine used:
Stampin:  Mixed Bunch and Loving Thoughts; Card Stock and Markers - In Colors 2011-2013 - Island Indigo, Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White; Ink - Island Indigo, StazOn Black; Embossing Folder - Vintage Wallpaper; Big Shot; Punches - Modern Label and Blossom; Embellishments - Basic Rhinestone Jewels, 5/8" Organza Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Sticky Strip (for the double-sided tape), and fixative; SNAIL adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals to keep it all together.

I never would have thought to throw these colors together -- but they really work well, don't they?  Lots of glimmer and glitz. 

Today was such a busy day at work . . . it's super, duper good to be home and relaxing for a little bit.  And, you know, making cards is one of the most relaxing things I know.  You get a quick reward from it because you can have something finished in your hand almost right away.  It's great to take that card (or other paper creation) and give it away afterward.  Think of it as double-rewarding yourself.
