The Glitter Affect

Brrrrr! It is another cold day in South Dakota but it is nice and warm inside and since my hubby is off at his part time job working today, I am again playing with the glitter affect. But this time I am using a Sakura Clear Star pen to get the same affect.

Again I used the darling image and sentiments from the Heartfelt Wishes set from the Everyday With Barkley line that I purchased from Crafter's Companion. Note how the Sakura pen which I used around the heart shows up as a glittery look! It is a clean and simple way to dress up your card designs. I love my Sakura pens for this reason. They come in lots of colors too.

I also decided to practice on my bow making and found this cute heart ribbon I had purchased several years ago. I used the Craft-Dee BowZ maker. I have tried other ways of making bows but this seems to be the one where I can get reasonably good results.

The pattern paper on the card is from Gina K. Designs to which I added some more red color with a sponge. And the gems are unknown to me as I lost all the paper information to accompany them. I, know...shame on me! But sometimes that happens!

I am entering this card in the Mod Squad Challenge for this week since I used a glittery affect with my Sakura pen and that it contains hearts!.

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting. I hope your day is an awesome one.

Hi Verna - how sweet of you to comment on my cards, and coming here to thank you: what a delightful 'new' little space you've created for sharing your lovely cards and your journeys into this wonderful, encouraging, supportive community! I've been making cards for just over a year or so, and blogging about them since last April, so I know what it's like to be a newcomer! Your card here - and the several others I wandered around to admire - is delightful! The puppy and kitten: adorable x 10000!! The glitter: such a sweet special touch! Have a fabulous Thursday evening!!
