Day 91: You're Invited Gold Glitter Card

Tonight I was starting a completely different project when I spied this YOU'RE INVITED Cricut cut just laying on my desk. It reminded of the new CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge and suddenly I was off on a tangent. A glittery, gold tangent!
I've been meaning to join in over at the Color My Heart Dare blog for a while and this week the color combo is Black, White, and Gold. I knew this diecut would be sweet in gold glitter, but I hadn't cut it in Gold glitter paper. It was a leftover from when I did my Cricut boards so it was cut in Colonial White. I laid out my background in black and white arrow washi tapes while I pondered. I stamped on my sentiment from my fav Happy Everything set, and pondered more,
I knew I didn't want to cover it all in Stickles, because to cover such a large area it'd be a lot of stickles and probably two coats with touch-ups. No time for that...so I went old school. I got out my Bonding Memories 2 way glue pen and colored that die cut bit by bit, adding super fine gold glitter as I went, Then I popped the glittery diecut up over my washi tape background...and went around the edges with a slightly darker shade of Stickles. 'Cause nothing sets off glitter like more glitter, am I right? 

Now I can go to bed happy...covered with glitter, but happy. G'night, Stampin' Friends!
