Glitter it up for a Boy

This week over at Critter Sketch Challenge we were to make a masculine/boy card using GLITTER.  Do you know how hard it is to make a boy card using GLITTER?  I didn't know how hard it would be either, but finally figured out a way I could make it work. 


I stamped my card in yellow and then over it in versamark and embossed it using Glitter Embossing powder from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.  With the except of the color of my card turning out a little wonky I thought it looked masculine enough.  It was for a 4 yr old's birthday party so I thought it would work.

Remember, this month Limelight Papercrafts is our sponsor and if you haven't been over to their site, it's worth wandering over there.  I just got an order from Mandy this week (quick shipping) and need to get to work using all that new Basic Grey cardstock (Max&Whiskers and Capella at 40% off right now) I ordered from her as well as some bling brads.

I had just seen the FTL103 layout posted and thought this would be a perfect layout for this image.  

Hope you will join us over at Critter Sketch Challenge and show us how you work your magic using glitter on masculine/boy card.  If you need some inspiration to jump start you, make sure to visit the design team here:
