If you were celebrating Labour day I hope it was a beautiful long weekend for you. I know the U.S and Canada celebrate and hubby and I celebrated our 55th anniversary, we went for dinner tonight at The Erie Beach Hotel in the Cove room. It was great, our server brought us each a dish of icecream with a candle in it, how fab. was that. The head server came over and chatted with us too, we have spent quite a few anniversaries having dinner there, the best thing is the salad cart that comes to your table, cucumbers in sour cream, cabbage salad, pickled beets, a horseradish salad, pickled pumpkin and lots more. Oh yes and now on to the challenge!!! At Shopping Our Stash
this week it's Mirror Mirror we want you to use something reflective on your project, the shinier the better. I had a fabulous idea I wanted to use the shimmer sheets and try a new technique alas the shimmer sheets are MIA and I didn't have enough time to give a good look for them either. Here is what I finally ended up making.
The sun had passed the perfect point for my picture I hope you can see the shine on the poinsettia. the reflective cardstock I bought many years ago at Dollarama, there is red, green and gold in the package and I really liked it as I found 4 packages in my stash. The embossing folder is from a winter pack and the poinsettia is cut with a Boss Cutz die. I coloured the pearls yellow with a copic marker and added rhinestones for more sparkle.
I elevated the poinsettia and this shows the shine better.
This is the inside of the card, I added a smaller flower and I would deem this card a hand deliver only, it's a bit heavy and certainly won't go through the slot template at the post office.
I would like to enter this in:
Jingle Belles challenge tic tac two
I chose the center vertical line Bling, Diecuts, Snow. (the snow is the snowflakes on the embossing folder) hope I'm not stretching it too far.
Thanks for stopping by today and please join Shopping Our Stash for the Mirror, Mirror challenge.
