hello friend

today i played along with two challenges today! i llike my card, but i have to say, i think i took the long way to make it! ha ha! the two challenges i played along with are the sweet stamp shop's use what you have challenge and CAS(E) this sketch! it's hard for me to resist a sketch challenge! :)

i also can't resist city scenes lately! here's my card:

first i stamped some of the skyscrapers from the sweet stamp shop's cityscape stamp set. then i used a craft knife to cut out all of the windows. then i adhered a layer of acetate behind that and popped it all up and added lots of martha stewart glitter to create a shaker element! :)

i have had this glitter forever! i originally bought it because i really have a weakness for brightly colored (anythings) in assorted colors. true story! ha! anyway, as it is now, generally if i want to add a little glitter, i use stickles, not loose glitter.

oh well, i had a reason to break out some loose glitter now - this challenge! :) 
i really like the road washi tape, too! it's like we're driving to a friend's to say hello! :) and of course, what's a road trip without some sunrays and sequins, right?! :) oh, and the sentiment is from the 'furry friends forever' stamp set.

so that's it!
