MIM #94- Blessed Christmas


This week's MIM is to use glitter as an accent. I had a Quickie Glue pen but it didn't get used frequently enough that the glue dried up in it and I had to toss it. So I just used my favorite liquid glue, Scotch Quick Dry. I pulled out my Simple Sunflower set again because I had seen a card using it to make poinsettias and thought that was a fabulous idea and it makes the set even more versatile. I went for a very non-traditional color scheme and used Fabulous Frames as well as a sentiment from Star of Wonder. My glitter is Martha Stewart, Antique Gold. I really like how it came out and I hope to use this technique again this week, it's fun to add just a bit of sparkle:) Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous, unique color combo! And a clever idea to use the sunflowers as poinsettias! and for a $5 set you can't beat that. Wonderful inspiration.

Hubba! Hubba! So pretty! That golden frame is amazing! If I had a go, it would have quickly turned into a zigzag border! Such steady hands you have. ;-) The sunflowers are a delight as well.
