Glitter and Glitz

The Front:

The Inside:

I have been on a roll, lately with card making! It's so fun and relaxing for me. My aunt has been spending some time with us over the last week, and she doesn't sleep well at night... So she likes to sit and watch me make cards at the kitchen table. That means I have to do my part to keep her entertained!

This cute little image is from Dustin Pike. He is so cute! I even decorated the inside of the Card! The purple background was originally white paper, which I embossed with the little hearts cuttlebug folder (The one that comes in the love language set). Then, I sprayed the white cardstock with Glimmer mist for a light sparkly effect. The purple glitter paper is specialty paper from Hobby Lobby. I bought this on impulse, because purple is my favorite color, and had this in my stash, saving it until an idea struck me. The heart's are punched with a punch by Martha Stewart. Pink ribbon is from my stash. The heart on the Dragon's Box, and the sentiment are both pop dotted to stand out. Pink & Purple is one of my favorite color combos.
