All that glitters...

Hi everyone. Today's card is my latest for Daring Cardmakers. Our new challenge, set by Shabneez, is 'All the glitters is not gold...'- in other words use lots of glitter as long as it's not gold. It was a bit of a challenge for me as I don't really do much glitter, so I hope you like my take on the theme.


For my card, I've used some fabulous glittery washi tape I found in The Works. I think I may be becoming a washi tape addict, I've started to buy rolls of it whenever I see it and will be drowning in it soon.

The flower is a Crafter's Companion stamp. I coloured it with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and cut it out using my Scan n Cut (which I am starting to love at last!). Hopefully you can see the sparkle more clearly here:


It is Mental Health Awareness Week this week, so I wanted the card to have a positive statement. I've suffered from depression and anxiety in the past, so I know how much positive words are needed sometimes. The word stamps are by Craftwork Cards, stamped using Versafine ink using my Tim Holtz stamping platform. 

Unfortunately, I found out last week that my time on the Craftwork Cards DT has come to an end. Although it is actually a good thing in many ways, I do feel a little sad and will miss being on the team. Sometimes keeping positive is hard but I am very lucky to still work for two fabulous companies in Hunkydory and Trimcraft. What an amazing 12 months it's been.

I do hope you will join in the dare at Daring Cardmakers this week. Have a fabulous weekend.
