I'm thrilled to have a card chosen for Honorable Mention on the http://casology.blogspot.com/.
That was a lovely surprise this morning.

I also want to post a card I made from Sparkle and Shine online class. This is a background made with Gansai Tambi pearl watercolors. I painted the color on acetate and smooshed it on the black card stock. I let it dry naturally and it gives such a soft shine. The balloons are a Simon Says Stamp die as is the happy birthday die. Gold thread is used for strings and SU sparkle paper in green and blue for the balloons. I think the gold is Tim Holtz. This is for my grandsons upcoming birthday. Be kind to one another.  Oh, I just posted this and it is not as beautiful as it is IRL. The balloons are so shiny and really stand out against the shine on the background. I wish you were here!

  4. Hi Brenda, Congratulations on the honourable mention with CASology! Your card is beautiful, love the shiny iridescent background you created perfect for a grandson. I always find it hard to take pictures of cards with glittery, sparkly elements too, they never seem to show up as well as they look on the cards in real like. Have a wonderful week... Megan
