Peace & Joy Card

It sparkles so much prettier in real life. I hate that the sun goes down so early nowadays. anyway. I did this card for the Tuesday Triggers: All That Glitters at Moxie Fab. I really like the silver and purple color combo and that is why I used silver embossing powder for the polka dots on the gray paper. Both the Gray and light purple paper are sprayed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water to give them that extra sparkle. The twine used on the banners is actually silver and glittery made by Inkadinkado.

Supplies: Cardstock by Sunborn; ribbon unknown; fiber by Inkadinkado; embossing powder by Stampendous, stamps by Fawn Lawn, Clear Dollar Stamps, Technique Tuesday, Hero Arts, Stampabilities and Stampin Up; banner by Cricut cartridge Lryical letters; ink Versamark, Ranger and Memento; Perfect Pearls by Ranger.

This card is for the following challenges:
Simon Says-nontraditional Christmas colors
Sweet Stampin Challenge-Make your own Background paper (polka dot paper)
Creative Card Crew-Anything goes
Papertake Weekly-non red and green card
One Stitch at a Time-Old stash- paper is about three years old and ribbon is about 5 years old but all the letter stamps are new and the cartridge to make the banner is new.
Thanks for looking
