Silver Bells.....Silver Bells......!

 This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are creating using Gold or Silver.

 Here is my first card- Shimmer and more shimmer. The image is on  Silver Lustre cardstock. The embossing powder is very shimmery IRL- so hard to photograph it....!  I colored the image with Spica Glitter pens and added highlights with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The darker Silver color is just another layer of the Silver Glitter pen.

 This is SU Silver Metallic cardstock. Again, I used the Spica Glitter Pens and the Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The Ivory embossing powder is very glittery as is the Silver EP at the bottom.  I painted on a think layer of Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust pain on the button to shimmer it up too.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Image Bells with Bow HERE
Merry Christmas Sentiment HERE
Lace Border HERE
Distress Ink for embossing HERE
Fantasy Ivory and Fantasy Silver embossing powders  HERE

Creative Inspirations Paint-on Button (Fairy Dust) HERE
Double Line Tape HERE
