Late Birthday Card

{{{I still have many Unity stamps for sale - and am planning on listing more stuff very soon! Check them out HERE, or click on the tab above!}}}

Good morning! I feel like lately I have been sneaking in a little crafting here and there while I am homeschooling my kids and such, but I haven't been spending much time on the computer or blogging. So...I have a few cards piling up that I need to blog! Since this first one is for a challenge that is due today, I thought I would start here:
I made this one for the current CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Challenge:

I used a stamp set from My Favorite Things, as well as some of their new inks that I recently purchased. After I stamped the image/sentiment, I placed a polka dot mask over the top of the paper, and sprayed with Mister Huey's Shine Mist - pretty much a clear and glittery color. It is a really subtle effect and doesn't show up in the photos that well, but looks really fun in person!
Added some of my current crafty love - sequins! LOVE the fun color and sparkle they add! 
Also tucked a bit of bling at the bottom of the two, added some May Arts yellow ribbon, and a couple of Studio Calico Wood Veneer pieces before mounting it on some Bazzil Cardstock.
Just a heads up - somehow over the weekend, I jumped up over 600 followers! And several weeks ago I hit over 100 Facebook followers! I really try not to dwell on those numbers, and really don't give them too much attention - but I have been wanting to do a giveaway, and this seems like as good a reason as any! So stay tuned...I hope to get it all together sometime in the next week or so! 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!!
