My card started out as a thirst-quenching tribute to the Texas heat. However, with the addition of all the sparkly goodness, it now looks like a tribute to Las Vegas, reminiscent of Elvis in the "white jumpsuit and lamb-chop side burn years"! I'm not really sure how it got to this point...
*Sigh* I had good intentions, but this gorgeous DSP was screaming for some dressed-up, blinged-out, FUN! I thought it would be fab to add some Crystal Effects and sparkly glitter to the stamped image to jazz it up a little. Then I added more glitter, then MORE glitter...suddenly I see how this card got to the "Vegas-Elvis" stage! :)
Quick tip for Crystal Effects: someone (namely, ME) shook the bottle a "little" too vigorously and the results of that are the air bubbles you see on the image. Although it fits for this project, (so, I will completely claim that I over-shook on "purpose") remember to be gentle with YOUR Crystal Effects for a smooth, glassy image.
