Sparkly Love Note

I was playing around with the Love You Much set and this is what happened! :) I actually saw the idea to use glitter on the LOVE letters over at Jill's Card Creations. If you haven't seen her blog, you must check it out - she has some GREAT ideas!

I've had this Orchid Fine Cosmo Glitter for quite some time, but hadn't put it to good use. I also wanted to do a color combo that was a little different, so I used my Color Coach to see what I might use with the Lavender Lace and I decided to go with Cameo Coral. I have to admit that I was just a bit apprehensive at first, but I really like how this turned out! All the ladies who were stamping at the Verona Senior Center last night loved it, too. Several of them are coming to my 10 Cards for $10 on Saturday, so I've decided to add this card (or a similar rendition) to the line up.

Glitter close-up:

A little tip: Evidently I can't "color" within the lines with my glue pen, because my glitter was outside of the letter outlines. Once the glitter had dried a bit, I used the pointed tip of my bone folder to scrape away the excess glitter to get a crisper image.
