You Shine

2nd post of the day! :) Since my other post was technically for the Pink By Design blog, I thought I should post again! I FINALLY got to play with my Silhouette a little! It cuts smooooooooooooooth as butta!!! :) Love it! Since my girls were in my craft room with me (TERRORIZING) while I was figuring out my new machine, I kept this project simple and quick... I was inspired by the Inspiration Challenge over at Pretty Little Studio.

This picture actually inspired me in kind of a funny way.... When I looked at these gray straws my first thought was - this pic needs more COLOR!! :) 

I used my Candy Cane Pink By Design background stamp and gray ink to get the stripes in the background. I used a rainbow from the Silhouette store and used my 2 way glue pen to add Martha Stewart glitter to each layer. I had a hard time choosing my sentiment! I wanted to go with 'friendship makes life colorful', but I wanted to keep this card soooo simple that it seemed a little long in this case. (Both sentiments are from the Friends to the End set by Pink By Design) I opted for 'you shine' which I embossed with red sparkly powder. 

I popped the rainbow off the page with foam stickers to give it some dimension. 

Hope you like my very simple card!! I hope I get more time to play with my Silhouette tonight!!! :)
