This is for Holly's sparkling season HYCCT challenge to make a holiday card with glitter. I have been neglecting the QFTD Challenges lately so I decided I would try to combine. I found this beautiful card in Ruth's lovely gallery and decided I could make it work for both challenges. I don't have any heart dies, so I punched my stamped knots and then freehand cut around a traced heart then traced that 2 more times. I also free-handed the stem. My glitter comes on the ribbon accent where I added 1/4" scor tape then sprinkled on the glitter (I had failed in another technique attempt and my stamping area is COVERED in glitter as am I!). The bg is embossed in the argyle ef (I didn't have a matching ef as Ruth did) and I popped my layered sentiment over the ribbon.
Congrats to Ruth-hope you enjoy your reign.

So cute!!!!!!!! I love your shamrock - really clever to use the heart punches!! LOVE your glittery ribbon! I need to try adding the tape onto the ribbon and then glittering it - cool idea!! Thank you for playing in my challenge!!
