You'd think that I would learn. I hostess for VSN and come up with these great challenge ideas...then I have to actually DO the challenge. And it never fails that it's one that is outside my comfort zone.
Well, I did it again. Sparkle is outside my comfort zone. I have rhinestones...hoarded ones. I have sparkly embossing powder...it's been around forever. I have sparkly spritz sprays. I have sparkly paper. Yes, I use them...occasionally...and in small amounts.
Then one of my wonderful Punchkateer buddies sent me this lovely blue rhinestone spray. I thought, "oooh, this is pretty...but will I ever use it?" I know she was just trying to get me out of my box...right???!
So, I used the spray. Hooray! And my card really sparkles. Love it!
And even though I didn't use punches or dies, I did a bunch of hand cutting so my PT is 7.

OK, the absolute gorgeousness of this card makes up for the lack of any punching... (insert big grin here because hand cutting is indeed much more time consuming...) I love this Diane!!! It's into my faves as I should have this Fabulous Florets set in my hot little hands on Wednesday when I stop by my demo's place. Love that awesome rhinestone spray! Wonderful card my Punchie Pal. :)

I think you were meant for glitz Quiltzi. This is a fabulous card filled with sparkle and bling. LOVE the array of flowers too. You might want to step out of your comfort zone more often as you did an incredible job!
