Admit One

I'm now on my Christmas break and don't have to go back to work until January 3rd - yahoo!  So what's a girl to do but stamp?  

I made a card that is a bit of a departure from my usual style - it's glittery and colorful!

This card is for the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the Friday Mashup challenge.  I mashed it up this week and used both the colors (Gumball Green, Bermuda Bay, Real Red and Crumb Cake) as well as blinging it up.  Here's a close-up of the bling:

The Crumb Cake card base was scored using my diagonal scoring plate then dots of Dazzling Details were added at each scored intersection.  The stamps come from the Free Spirits set by Paper Smooches and the inside of the glass was painted with Dazzling Details as well.

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Free Spirits (Paper Smooches)
Ink:  Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, Real Red
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Thoroughly Modern DSP, Brights DSP Stack
Accessories:  Free Spirits dies, Dazzling Details, Ticket Duo Punch, Simply Scored

Edited to Add:  This card was an Artist Pick at Hand Stamped Sentiments and a Glamette Award at Friday Mashup.
