GLIMMER and SPARKLE

For the past two weeks or so, I have been painting ceilings, washing walls and rearranging furniture.  Still have more to do, but decided to take a break and make a card or two.  Actually, I made some birthday cards, but neglected to take photos and have already sent them out :(

This card is for the Simon Says Stamp challenge which calls for glimmer and sparkle. 



This autumn tree from Penny Black is one that I won in the Stamptember celebration at Simon Says Stamp.  I colored the leaves with Prismacolor pencils and then covered them with a Stardust sparkle pen.  And, they really do "glimmer" in real life, but it is hard to see in the photo.  The little "gems" are actually stickers from Stickos that also glimmer a bit. 

Have a great day!

Beautiful card Joy. Glad you took a break to create this. It is just so lovely. I know how sparkley those pens are. It really is hard to see in photos.
