A Heart that Glitters

I saw this challenge over at 365 Cards - The 3 G's: Green, Glitter and Grosgrain. I immediately thought of a technique I did a long time ago using Sticky Strip. You take a piece of sticky strip, add it to your cardstock/DSP, peel the top and add glitter. So easy!!!

As I was looking through my DSP, I realized that I do not have a lot of green prints. I did stumble across this sheet in the Sweet Pea DSP. The pink definitely works for Valentine's Day and I happened to have some green and pink glitter.

Blinging up the heart was easy...designing the rest of the card, not so much. I finally did what the DSP was telling me, "Cut on the Diagonal!" So, I did. I really like how it all turned out.

I'm back to work tomorrow *sigh* so I won't get to create as much as I have the past two weeks. I will miss it. Enjoy your week!
