Critter Challenge #27

This week's Critter Challenge is to create a card (or layout, of course) for a man or boy. The twist? It MUST contain some kind of glitter somewhere on the card! My mom called and asked me to make her a simple baby boy card for a coworker, so I knew exactly what to do! I do apologize in advance for the poor picture quality. I broke one of my light box studio lamp bulbs and need to replace it. I was only working with one light and a not-so-sunny day.

I started with a Chocolate Chip (SU) base and stamped on this airplane, Congrats banner, and some clouds, all in White ink. I paper-pieced the airplane using Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane/ Life's Portrait paper (this paper is actually light BLUE with brown dots...). I painted Pixie Dust Shimmerz on the clouds to give them some sparkle, added some Star Dust Stickles to highlight the banner, and even affixed an Ice Blue rhinestone to "attach" the banner to the plane. :) Lots of bling for a boy card, huh?
I hope you are enjoying the Critter Challenges this month as much as I am! Don't forget, every card you create and upload to the Critter Challenge blog gives you a chance to win the Lily stamp set that is up for grabs! :) Have a great day!
