Time to Sparkle

I've been playing with the Bottleful of stamp set from Altenew.
I bought it for the sole purpose of making masculine cards but I saw
someone make a card using the beer bottle as a vase - it looked
fantastic so I thought I'd give it a try.


The challenge at CAS on Sunday is a toppings theme of adding
sparkle to your card - use some bling!
You can't see the sparkle very well in the first pic but it shows up in 
the one below. Besides the sequins, I used the Spectrum Noir 
Crystal Clear glitter pen on the bottle/vase - love how it looks.


I used  the brick wall embossing folder for some texture in the
background. I've always loved the look of a white sentiment on
a white card - I used some white fun foam under the 'ello' part of 
the die to pop it up.

You know how once in awhile you make a card that makes you smile?
This is that one for me.

Check out the challenge at CAS on Sunday and add some sparkle to 
your day!

Happy Stampin'
