I Did the Unthinkable

What did I do? Not only did I make a card with glitter, but I designed a card for my upcoming Memory Box Halloween class using glitter. What was I thinking?! I am worried about the amount of glitter clean-up that might be involved and the number of days after the class that I will still be wearing glitter. Do you think people would mind if I asked them to step into a plastic glitter containment bubble when working with the sparkly stuff? Just a thought.

I have to admit though that the flourishes on my Halloween card looked much better with black glitter than black embossing powder. I think there is just something about Halloween that demands a little extra sparkle and flair. Here is a close up of the flourishes:

Speaking of classes, I finally updated my "upcoming classes" tab on the top of my blog. I am still working on the samples for the "Impression Obsession Background" and "Memory Box Christmas" classes, so there aren't links to those classes just yet.

Eek! Glitter! Not unreasonable to ask people to step into a plastic glitter containment bubble. Love the card - it turned out great!

Gorgeous card! I had a chuckle after I saw it. (Don't know if you saw mine on the OTB blog) :) Great minds think alike?

Hi, Laura! What a gorgeous card! I feel for you with the glitter! My hubby suggested that I use holographic embossing powder the other day ... and I said no because it gets glitter flecks EVERYWHERE and I didn't want to deal with it! Good luck with your class! Oh, and can you send over one of those glitter containment bubbles? I could use one! :-)

I have the same "dislike" of glitter but I have to say that this was the right choice! CUTE.
