Sparkling lights

This card has sooooo much sparkle in real life!!! I played with *real* glitter again - LOVE IT! This time I busted open my huge pack of Martha Stewart glitter that somehow slipped into my cart one day while "grocery" shopping at Walmart...! (still assuming the hubby doesn't read this...!) *wink* All the glitters have gemstone names - this red is called Garnet. The Christmas light image is from the FireCracker Designs by Pamela set called Season's Greetings. I stamped the light three times, then drew the little string between them. The layout is this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoast (SC207). I also played along with the Stamp Something challenge to use red, green and gold on a card. I don't remember the last time I used this much gold on a card! :-) The tops of the lights were colored gold with a Sakura paint pen. I'm guessing the paint pen had a nasty smell to it - but my head is so stuffed up, I didn't even notice! HA! The bright side of stamping with a cold!! Alrighty - hoping to get this posted and still bust out another card before Courtney wakes up - thanks for stopping by today!!
