Bride with Shine

Hello!  Today I have been playing with shine and glitter on a Wedding card.  It is sooo hard to show the results in a photo so I have shared 2 photos of the card so that hopefully you will see the shine achieved with Sakura Stardust and Wink of Stella Pens.  More shine and shimmer is included in the Gold Shimmer CS by DCWV and the Metallic Gold Bells cut with the Cameo.  I was inspired by several challenges in the making of this card using a Digi Image from A Day for Daisies. The digi was printed on GKD heavyweight CS.
Other Supplies: White CS, Metallic Gold CS, Rhinestones, Pilot Gold Metallic Marker, Embossing Folder, New Epson Printer

A Day for Daisies: Challenge #150 Add Glitter.  Used glitter pens and rhinestones as well as the shimmer and metallic CS with Wedding Veil digi.
Sketch Saturday: Sketch # 417 below
Cards in Envy: It's a great day for a White Wedding or Anniversary Card. Card is flat enough for a A2 envelope.
Shopping Our Stash: #257 Use a Dress or Dress Form.  Use a ADFD Digital image from my stash of images and also the bell file from my Silhouette files.  Also used rhinestones and CS from my stash.
Mod Squad Challenge: All That Glitters.  Missed last week's Wedded Bliss challenge but used that theme with my glitter this week.  Lot of glitter on the wedding dress.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Add some Shimmer.  And my card shimmers in the cardstock and on the dress.
Cute Card Thursday: Challenge 431 Wedding/Anniversary

Note: I have a new Epson printer because my HP printer quit feeding heavier paper and struggles to print even after I cleaned the rollers and other maintenance.  For my birthday, I asked for Epson SureColor P400 which I can say is a dream printer for a crafter.  And my DH made my birthday wish come true.

Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
