Do not adjust your monitors

Your eyes do not deceive you. This IS the newest Cosmo Cricket line called DeLovely. It is their brightest, whitest line ever; and it's stunning. I am crazy in love with it... especially the yellow and turquoise. How in the world did little ole me get this line when the scrapbook stores are just now getting it? I won it from Cosmo Cricket. (You have been entering the giveaways I tell you about, right?)

I made this card for this week's Glitter and Bling challenge at ScrapTiffany. I kinda felt like I should've used more shine somewhere for this challenge, but the awesome papers turned out bold enough.

To get the glitter strip, I cut a strip of Tacky Tape and punched it with a Fiskars border punch. I first tried a different company's border punch, but it didn't give a clean cut. I was impressed that the Fiskars punch could do it when the other brand could not. Kudos to Fiskars! (Oh, and are you a Fiskateer? Go here and sign up. They've got a sweet gift for you.) I peeled the top layer off first to apply the glitter because I did not want the glitter to get stuck between each paper strip. Then, I applied the glitter strip to the card.

The sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers. (I won those, too.)

Oh, this card also fits the sketch from Everything But The Kitchen Sink.

Hope you like it!! And come play along with the ScrapTiffany Challenge.
