Fun on Friday

I got off at 11:30 today and decided to come home and work on my craft room.  Now I must say that while I made this card, I did clean up.  I had stacks of paper that I had not used and was trying to get them put into a drawer that I have for specific papers.  When I was putting this paper up that Nancy had sent me from one of her blog candy give aways, I decided it would be the perfect paper for this card.  So I sit down and started working on it and boy did it work.  So yes, I did put the paper up after I finished the card.  And even the paper I had to pull out, I put up.  So my working space looks a lot better now than it did when I started.

This card was inspired by this week sketch over at Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I had been wanting to use this new single stamp which is a sneak peak from the Christmas mini.  Also it matches up well with a die from the Christmas mini which is what I cut it out with.  I just love it!

Here is a side view of the card!

And a close up of the image so you can see the sparkle as I spritzed it with my mixture of Shimmer paint and alcohol.  It works beautifully.

And a inside look where I used some more of that paper from Nancy!  Nancy does a wonderful job and you can check her blog out here.  Thanks for this beautiful paper Nancy.
