Sparkle, Glitz and Glam

With a few anniversary dates approaching, I knew I needed to get busy and get the cards done before I forget.  Yes, I have the dates written on two calendars but they seem to get buried amongst all the crafty stuff and you know the old saying, "out of sight out of mind."  Add to that my advancing years and you have a perfect formula for forgetfulness.

The current challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous was perfect for a beautiful silver and black anniversary card.  I love these two colors together!  It also let me use some rhinestone trim I've been keeping in my stash.  Since I have to mail this one, I kept the layers to a limit.  In all honesty, I think this was a good example of less is more.  It really let the rhinestone trim stand out.

Stamp Set:  Teeny Tiny Wishes (Stampin' Up!); Ink:  VersaMark Watermark Ink; Card Stock:  Basic Black (Stampin' Up!), Glitzy Glitter Cardstock Stack (DCWV); Accessories & Tools:  Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch and Black Embossing Powder (Stampin' Up!), Silver Rhinestone Trim, Black Rhinestone Trim, Pop Dots

Here is the inspiration image from the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge.
