Our first Tea Party of '09, and Donelda challenged us to bring on the bling - specifically of the glittery variety.
I really love the sentiment and the bird in the Shelley set, and thought it would work well for this challenge. I pulled out the granola BasicGrey pad, and selected this simple blue print as well as several coordinating "solids." I stamped the bird and the sentiment onto the lightest one, then trimmed away. I traced the bird with stardust stickles - my favorite way to add sparkle while still allowing color to come through (plus I always seem to make a big mess with loose glitter!). I cut the bottom of the printed paper with decorative scissors to add a bit more interest, and then layered a narrow strip of paper under the sentiment (which is a better option than ribbon if you're planning to mail something out).
Be sure to go visit Susan, Dina, Giovana & Donelda to see what sparkly goodness they have to share! :)
