Tonight was club night and as I was prepping for it I remembered how much I just love to craft. I sure don't get enough time in my room anymore. Life has gotten too hectic but I am going to take a few minutes to show you one of the cards we made and then how I revised it.

I made this first card to show two things. The first was a great way to use up all those tiny strips of scrap dsp. I cut 3 1/2" strips that were 1/4" thick. Then I bent them in half and glued the ends together. When I had 12 of these I adhered them to a circle and then added my layers on top.
The second thing I wanted to show my group of ladies was that you can colour the silver glitter paper any colour you want. Using your sponge daubers, add whatever colour you choose to your glitter paper. In this case I made Melon Mambo glitter paper. LOVE IT!

So anyways one of my ladies was loving this card and asked if it would work for a wedding card. I said sure if it was a Winter wedding but it got my wheels turning! So I pulled out a few different supplies and here is what I came up with on a whim.

Now I really like this card. No glitter paper but alot o' layers. LOVE IT even more!!!

So glad you came by for a visit. Thanks for stopping by!
