 Hello everyone,

Time for a new challenge this fortnight for AS YOU LIKE IT  and the them is..what is your favorite, Metallic or Glitter  and not to forget to tell us why.

Mine is..BOTH..eek, but metallic just sneaks in ahead of glitter but I still used both..

First, I chose my dies to use and the Honey Bee Cone Flower set with all its layers just yelled at me, so that was my flower, and green glitter card for the leaves..

Next this beautiful metallic low sheen card stock..

And die cut them along with the leaves in green glitter card stock..

Layered up these babies..

But not too much, just every other layer had foam..

Love the vein detail on these leaves even through the glitter..

Found this gorgeous paper with gold foil on it..

Fished out my wooden hearts, love these..

Placed the flowers in order...

Look at that shine..

And there we go after adding the gold die cut sentiment "Just for You "
and a simple gold embossed Happy Birthday..

So there go,

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

What a glamourous card, so beautiful Chrissy I love it.xx

Your gorgeous card both sparkles and shines so beautifully. It’s a tough one to choose between, but I love using glitter in many forms, paper, glue, embossing or loose, Mirri card looks lovely on a card but might be quite tricky to photograph.
