Here is another card I got into a mess doing, this time with glitter. What started out as a little bit of glitter around the image ended up with everything covered in it, not least of all.....me!

I first covered the base card with a snowflake paper, and then covered a doily with pink glitter and placed on the card, very messy! Next came the punched border and for this I covered a piece of pink card with D/S tape and then placed a punched, white border on top. Once this was in place I again covered it in the pink glitter making sure the glitter was stuck to the tape. The image has been coloured with promarkers adding flock to her clothes and then the edge was distressed and glittered. Finally, I added a circular sentiment to a flower. Job done! Don't you think this little Eskimo girl is so cute with her pet polar bear? Thanks for looking.
