Trish has selected Sue(Mrs Noofy) to be our Queen this week. Sue has a fantastic gallery and is one to leave kind and encouraging comments on so many cards made by others(me included).
I chose this CARD of hers which I think is a real beauty and so artistic. I changed the colors and the theme, but used the same technique...one which I missed while I was away.
Dawn's F4A was to add glitter to our card. I mixed some glitter in with clear EP to make my own "glitter EP". I don't like glitter falling all over the place when I open a card/envelope, so I try to "embed" mine somehow.
Congratulations, Sue....an honor you SO deserve. Hugs, Sallie

You made a lovely card using both techniques, and your bg colors are beautiful. I can't quite get the hang of the acrylic block technique, but I'll have to remember to use the glitter-plus-ep technique.

you know, I am smacking my forehead here I've bought embossing powder with glitter in it but, felt limited on how I could use it because, its PINK... but, the idea of adding clear bling glitter to any color is just like "why did you not think of that?" lol
this is a gorgeous card!
thanks for sharing!!!

Sallie, this is GORGEOUS. I love all the snowflakes in the background - some being more prominent than others Gives such dimension. And I must say I love the glitter :) Another wonderful "thank you" for someone special :)
