Party Time Tuesday, Winners & Giveaway!

It's Party Time Tuesdays' 3rd week card challenge!
This week the challenge is "Anything Goes", create a
birthday card any way you wish- just be sure to
include your birthday sentiment on the front of the
card. The DT has provided some great inspiration-
check em out! Hope you'll join us this week. :)

For my PTT card, I used sheets from
The Girls Paperie "Paper Girl" line. I'm usually not a
big fan of anything pink, but I received a few sheets
from a kit club a while back and I thought they
would make a pretty card.

Card Supplies: The Girls Paperie "Paper Girl", Martha
Stewart butterfly double punch, Tattered Angels Glimmer
Mist sunshine and patina, natural twine, buttons,
white and pink cardstock.

I've wanted to try Glimmer Mist for awhile. I've been
admiring their galleries and all the different uses and
techniques. I decided to start small and just add some
to the butterfly. My intention was to give it multiple
"spots" of Sunshine and Patina (yellow and a blueish teal) -
but the result turned out mixed and it actually became
greenish. Although it's not the result I wanted, I
thought the color was okay so I went with it. :)

Are you a Glimmer Mist novice like me? Maybe you're
a pro and use it on everything! Since I'm celebrating
June and the summer sun - I'm giving away a new
Limited Edition Summer 2010 2oz. bottle of
"Sunshine" Glimmer Mist!

Just leave one comment on this post and I'll randomly
choose a winner on Friday morning! It's really that easy!

And now I have a couple winners to reveal.
Thanks so very much for all your comments! :)

Winner of Crate Paper "Brook" rub-ons & cardstock stickers..

  3. Great card. I've never used Glimmer Mist, but would love to try. Perhaps one color had to be totally dry before adding the other. But learning is half the fun.

  4. Love your card, greenish glimmer mist and all. I'm a glimmer mist virgin :x

  5. LOVE your card-the GM on the butterfly is beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity to win that pretty yellow GM!

  6. congrats to the winners, and OMG, that butterfly turned out FABULOUS! those colours go wonderfully together! gorgeous, clean and simple card!

    i love to play with spritzes, but i find that many of them don't give a vibrant spray - that new Sunshine colour, however, looks HOT and BOLD! *drool*

    thanks for the chance to win, Abby!
