I love glitter paper!

Has anyone else noticed that I seem to be fixated on birds this year?  And wreaths, too, I guess.  This is another entry for The Card Concept; kraft, red, and white do make a pretty color combination, and add some sparkle to it, and I'm a happy girl!  There is a wonderful selection of glitter cardstock this year, and they're a much easier way to get that sparkle into a card without the mess of "real" glitter.


The wreath is an older Hero Arts one called Wreath of Leaves.  It was stamped in Stazon Cotton White twice to make it nice and full, then I simply added my glittery elements: Wplus9's Hand Lettered Holiday sentiment, Memory Box's Perched Reed Bird, and some punched circles for berries.  I'd put it into the Clean and Layered category.


Thanks for stopping by today.  It's BRRRRRRR here - 23 degrees this morning!  We had our first light dusting of snow earlier this week.  Thank goodness the sun is shining!  Enjoy your weekend!

ETA: I'm also adding this to the A2ZScrapbooking November challenge, Anything Goes, and Inspiration Journal's November Challenge: Happy Holidays!

THat's beautiful. The glittery accents are just gorgeous. I love glitter paper, too, as long as the glitter stays put on the paper.

What a great card! I love glitterpaper, but don't use it much, since I think I'll will overpower it. But you nailed it with this one; beautiful!

Simply beautiful. I love the touch of red glitter paper. I agree, it is much easier to use then actual glitter.
