See the CSS "Simply Sparkles" HOP


I am so glad that you stopped by to see my creation today.  If you arrived from Joy's blog, you are in the right place.  Our hop this time was to make a sparkly card, with only glittery type embellishments.
I used the Poster Board Sentiments Stamp Set by Rebecca Oehlers.  I created a masculine looking card, because every now and again, I need one for my guy! I used gold EP and then I covered the StampTV button with it also.  I used Fresh Asparagus, over gold CS and a Spellbinders Deckled Edge die cut for the BG.




Your next stop along this hop is to see Kay's beautiful creation.
