Oh My...Frills and Glitter Abound

I'm trying to wake everyone up as I post this early Friday morning. I think the glitter should do it. I'm doing my usual Friday Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The new Queen is Carol aka BobbiesGirl. I found this card in her gallery and thought the stamp she used was absolutely gorgeous. I didn't have it so I tried to use die cuts to make a loose case of her card.

My card is made with a Cheery Lynn die, an embossing folder, and a Spellbinders die. Recipe is below.
I ran my embossing folder through the Cuttlebug twice and cut out the center flower, sponged it, and popped in on top of the holly motif die cut.

Hope everyone has a super weekend. I'll be off to a college football game Saturday. Go Bama!

Recipe:
Stamps: Hot off the Press-Christmas Words
Paper: PTI Razzberry Fizz and white cardstock, Best Occasions glitter paper pack for flourish
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug (sponging flower)
Accessories: Spellbinders Shapeabilites Holly Motif, Sizzix Textured Impressions Winter Botanicals embossing folder, Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish, Star Dust Stickles, Gold Stickles

One of my fave combos: lots of white, lots of sparkle, and just a few key elegant elements. So pretty, Benzi! (I told my girls you had your tree up, and they say said, "Aw, man! Lucky!")
