Glittering celebration

I just managed to squeak in an entry to the "Stash Buster" competition on UK Stampers. The idea of the series of challenges is to use items from your stash that are often overlooked and the first item we were asked to use was glitter.

I fall fairly and squarely into the category of people who rarely remember to use glitter. In fact I don't have a big stash of it as I don't get sucked in to buying it but the few colours I have are mostly ages old!

I bought this fun Bubble Border stamp a while ago and haven't got round to inking it up so I thought I'd bring it in to play with this challenge. I used a Quickie glue pen and added turquoise ultrafine glitter and Glamour Dust to some circles (some coloured in first to give extra intesity to the glitter colour).

The sentiment is from a fun set which has some key words in the large, eleborate font and then lots of little additional words and phrases in the small, plain font so you can build your own sentiment.
