Glitter galore

Am back with another card. I know, I have been crafting a lot lately and am seriously LOVING it! This card is dedicated to my aunt in Bangalore. She is one gem of a person and I totally love her. I wanted to make her a very special card since she will be celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary next month. So I wanted to give it my best!

This is the first time I tried making a circular shaped card.. and I must say I am really loving the shape and I might just make a few more in the weeks to come. I think this shape limits you a bit when it comes to decorating due to the lack of corners. Which is why, I think, it makes it all the more challenging.

*warning* I have used truckloads of glitter for this card!!! Hehe.. Its like an explosion of glitter on the card. I had a very different idea in my mind when I started off making this card but by the end of it.. this is how it turned out…


I, initially wanted to tie a ribbon on top of the card but I decided not to be since I did not want to overdo it.

I would like to enter this card for the challenges mentioned below.

1) Catered Crop – Follow Recipe (I chose the colors pink and black)
