Changing Seasons

 I didn't intend to make two "cool weather" cards today - it's nice and sunny here and after posting this I'll be heading to the deck to enjoy it - sat out for a while this morning with my coffee and had a beautiful red dragonfly land on me and visit for a while.

Anyway - Stampin' Royalty are asking you to "Bring on the Bling" with their challenge this week - and holy crow does this new silver Glimmer Paper dazzle!!!!!  In a sunny room you almost need sunglasses to work with it!  (I don't usually use my flash when I take pictures of my cards, but I did today to bring out the bling!) This paper will certainly add a lot to Christmas projects!!!!

This was actually the first card I created this morning - but couldn't see how to add any bling to it.  The sketch is from SCS (I didn't keep to it totally) and I was inspired by THIS card by Taylor Ursy.  I loved the flowers she had on the watercolor paper - so I tried it with these leaves and this will turn into one of my workshop cards for this fall!!!

S0 - off to enjoy the sun - hope you have some in your area of the world to enjoy today.  Thanks for taking time to stop by for a visit!

Oh - and a special thanks to Lesley for adding some music to my banner - I love it!

I love the snowflakes on your card...did you use a silver shimmer paper or did you press out snowflakes on embosslits or sizzlits and then used the 2 way glue pen and silver glitter? I am just curious...

Does Stampin Up even sell silver glimmer paper...last time I looked I didn't see any in the catalogue for sale...maybe I was looking at an old catalogue????

Gorgeous job! I love the shimmer paper for the snowflakes... I've definitely got to change some cards I've just finished as those are the perfect accent! THanks for playing with us at Stampin' Royalty this week!
