Make A Wish!

Okay, I have to admit, I have a new obsession! Now you already know how much I love glitter right? (unless you are new here or been living under a rock! ; ) Well, what about German Glass Glitter? Have you ever worked with this stuff? Or seen it in person? Let me tell ya.....the sparkle is just amazing! Pictures here don't do it justice! I decided to make a birthday card using an old stencil and lots O' German Glass Glitter. The candles were handmade by me and I added a Melissa Frances rub on to one of the candles. The pretty lacy square doily was created using the brand new Cricut Circle Exclusive Cartridge, Sophie. (It has a doily function....... and I love doilies!!!)
I used a bit of Martha Stewart's pom pom trim and little metal Maya Road flower to tie around the candles.
And for a final finishing touch I used a Melissa Frances rub on on a clear button and tied it up with twine!
I am on the 3 week count down until I go back to school.......I can't believe summer is winding down already. My son will be starting high school......I will be back at work......crazy how fast life goes sometimes! So I am on a mission to enjoy this time........and try my best to slow it down......a little! Thank you for stopping!!!!

This is gorgeous! I am with you on slowing time down before school starts again. I am not sure I'm ready to go back to work yet :( Once the kids come though it will be great as always!

I love this card Michelle! I can't wait to get my hands on Sophie. How did you make the candles? Did you just roll a strip of paper up? I'd love to know. TFS!
