Glitter and bling are among my favorite things! Well, among them and high on the list – really how do I pick just two!! I have seen many cards done where the papers are all matted but this is the first time I have done it and I have to say I like mine just as much as I like everyone else’s! I think I will be doing more of this. I’m not too worried about running out of paper. ;-) As I was making this I started wondering – does coloring get hard as you get older?? I don’t have many stamps to color in but I really like the look of them. Apparantly, I don’t know how to color! I guess that’s something for me to work on this year. I just never thought of it as a hard thing to do and now I’m starting to think that it is. I just love this fairy that was sent to me. I might have to start buying more stamps to color because I don’t have any detailed ones. I tend to stick to the simple stamps or two-step stamping because it’s faster. It is faster but I really am liking the colored look. This could be a good idea for my Christmas money. Well, enough rambling. It’s taken me long enough to make this card without prolonging it any further. I hope you enjoy it! Oh – just one more thing – the stamped image was sent to me and I wanted it cut smaller but I could not get it cut straight for anything – therefore I distressed the edges! It’s a great technique to fool the eye!
