A Day For Daisies - Challenge #83 - Add Some Gold

I enjoyed making this card, but the glitter is going
everywhere - does anyone know how to stop this?
This is not how I started off making this card, as
I had intended for the glittery part to go on top of
the dress, but it was just too much glitter and the
folds on the dress couldn't be seen.

CAS Challenge - Sami Stamps

It's been a little while since I last wrote and that is because I have
updated and now have a new computer with Word 7 on it (an
early special birthday gift from bf).  Until now I have used XP,
which I was very happy with.  I received the computer only
yesterday and still have lots to sort out on it, and, get used to
a new system.

Of course I have been crafting in the meantime.  Good news -
I won a challenge on Core'dinations blog and look forward to
receiving a 12x12 paper pad.  I just love using their cardstock,
but haven't found it to buy here. It's fun paper to emboss and
sand, and they have the most beautiful projects on their blog.

Sad news for lots of crafters, Paper Craft Planet is closing at
the end of the year.  I know that many crafters are going to
miss this site tremendously.  Thank you Susanna for all the
hard work you put into this site.

Now for my card for the CAS challenge.  If this wasn't a CAS
challenge I would have added more bling, but it is a lovely
image and I think I have done justice to it.  Go and visit
Sami Stamps and get this freebie!
