I love the look of those glittery scenes on card fronts. I thought I'd try my hand at creating one using a focal stamp from Stampendous. While the scene is stamped in blue memento ink, the magic is in the glitter!

Using a quickie fine point glue pen I strategically added adhesive to the card front. Then I sprinkled on micro-fine glitter. While it takes quite a while to do so, the result is well-worth it! Look at this sparkle and shine.
