The Man In The Moon - 4th LHO Challenge: Glitter


Hello All And Welcome To Our 4th 'Lovely hAnglar Only' Challenge! This time it is on me to challenge you all and I want to see GLITTER on your cards/projects! I LOVE glitter it is one of my favorite embellishments and can be found on (almost) every of my creations ;-) I hope you like it too and will join in on our 4th fortnightly challenge. 

For my card this time I used the super adorable John Blund - The man in the moon. Isn't he just too cute? I'm totally fallen for this image....lol! I colored him using my Distress Inks this time. The DP I used is Jubilee from Memorybox.







And because the theme is glitter I went wild with it ;-) After coloring I covered the whole moon with Diamond Stickles and added Star Dusts Stickles to John Blund's collar and around the whole image. 


 
There is Blueberry Ice Stickles on the cherry blossoms and Yellow Stickles on the petit roses. Both are from Whimsy stamps and the blue fabric rose in the middle I found at Michaels. The pretty rose on top of the bow is from Elise's candy I won a few weeks ago.





 The blue glitter swirl is a sticker from EK Success I found recently at Walmart. The ticket is from my new stamp set called 'Ticket Sentiments' by Raindrop Echo Design from Whimsy stamps, they arrived here in no time! Thanks Denise!!! =) I love them and now I can't wait for my Tim Holtz Ticket Strip Die to arrive. 
The border punch is from MS.
I also decorated the inside of the card and used a sentiment from the Greeting Farm.

And because this is one of the cards that hardly fit in a regular envelope due to the flower embellies I made
a matching box for it. Lately I really like making these card & box sets. And they are really nice to hand over the cards to the recipient. Like a gift on its own. 



 I'm looking forward seeing your cards entered in our LHO challenge! Can't wait to see all the glitter!
Please come back tomorrow when a new Belles 'n Whistles challenge starts and I will also have a little surprise for you  ;-)
This card will also be for sale in my Etsy shop later today!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
Luv & Hugs,

Wow, Iris, I just posted a card with the same image on my blog...but mine isn't as perfect as yours. Unfortunately I don't own the stamp, just a stamped image.
What a gorgeous creation...
