My grandson is graduating from 8th grade and I needed a card for him. A boy card with no bling, flowers, ribbons BUT sparkle. I am taking the Sparkle and Shine online class and this is what I learned the first day. I used a piece of white glitter paper from DCWV and used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers to colors stripes on it. Then I used that paper to cut out the Yipee word from Waffle Flower. I stamped the hat from SU and the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.  I clear embossed the sentiment and went over it with a Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. I love how it came out, simple for a boy but the glitter colored paper gives it a boost. I will enter this into thehttp://casology.blogspot.com/ that my friend http://suescardcraft.blogspot.com/ gave me a heads up to/ Be kind to one another.
