Here is my card for the challenge.




To make this card, follow the steps below.

The Rose pocket die is placed on the Double sided adhesive sheet, face down and run through the die cut machine.


This is what you get after die cutting.


Trim the edges of the die cut to get a rectangular piece and remove the top white  sheet . Put Vintage Pink Silk Microfine Glitter and cover the whole area.

Remove the excess glitter and rub very well with finger tips to get the glittery shine. Buffing the glitter with finger tips makes it more sparkly.


This is how the glittery background should look.


Cut a frame from Dotted Scallop rectangle die from dark pink card stock.

Using the Celebrate die, cut a piece from the double sided adhesive sheet.


Using black silk microfine glitter, cover the die cut and buff with finger tips to bring the shine.



using 3mm double sided adhesive tape, adhere the pink frame on the glittered background piece. Mat it on a layer of white card stock that is little bigger. Mat the whole panel, on another pink card stock and finally adhere the whole panel on a white card base 7 1/2 " by 6". Add a strip of vellum in the centre and adhere the celebrate die cut. Finish with black sequins.
