52CCT: GLITTER!

Hi, all!  So, I am REALLY proud of myself!  I've got a card today for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for our weekly challenge, which is to use GLITTER.  And I did NOT have a GRI* in the making of this card, which is a super duper miracle!

Here's my card~

Details~



I've used stamps and glitter washi tape from Inspired By Stamping, seam binding ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, a glue pad from Tsukineko (PERFECT for that glitter), rhinestones by Basic Grey, a dry embossing folder by Sizzix, and all other supplies are from Stampin' Up!.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you join our challenge and that you leave some love with the other amazing gals on this DT, too!  HUGS and merry stamping, all!



*GRI: Glitter related incident.  It's from Will & Grace...I hope you know what I'm talking about, but if not, let me tell you about it--it is HILARIOUS!  Jack gets glitter in his eye and has to wear an eye patch.  His exact words when asked what happened are, "I had a GRI...I have had the biggest glitter related tragedy since Mariah Carey's film debut."  And that is where I get the acronym  GRI from. ;)

I so LOVE the blue, Mynn, and no GRI-how did you manage it?! This is another fab card with just the right amount of glitz to make it elegant.
