Shiny greetings

Crafting for my sanity... been a crazy summer, both good and bad, and I'm taking this morning for some craft therapy-- I don't even have the time to spare, but I truly need a few cards, so I can justify it!  I know you know what I mean! (I wrote that yesterday-- finally trying to post some stuff!)

This will go to a friend who needs some uplifting:

This image shows the ooh-ahh factor of the Magicals... 

  • Glitter base from DCWV Serenity stack
  • Metallic watercolor paper by DCWV colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals
  • Strathmore watercolor paper cut with my Cricut Explore Air 2 from a design I drew on my screen
  • Sentiment written with a medium Jane Davenport brush pen using DOx in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio
  • Gold sticker sentiments generic from the dollar store... Score!  I love these!

I'll share this with:


  1. I love this. Your colors are gorgeous, and the gold pattern is just perfect. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at Just Us Girls!
