Say it With Me, Girls... SHIMMERZ ROCKS!

You all know of my addiction to Shimmerz by now,
I hope... I mean... I LOVE IT! This is a background that I created for a card that was going NOWHERE!!! I cuttlebugged the background and then I sponged it to highlight the flowers. THEN... I took SHIMMERZ and BLINGZ and painted my flowers and my vines with it!!! HOW AWESOME DOES THIS LOOK!!! I knew right away that I needed this background for my failing card that I kinda put away because it was a lost cause... OR SO I THOUGHT! Look at the other photo to see how gorgeous this looks! I used my MS lace doily punch, my 'bug border and then some rhinestones to add a POP to the flowers. I LOVE that SHIMMERZ saved the day... and this card! The sentiment, "You are special to me" ... I dedicate to you, Love of my Life... My SHIMMERZ! Thanks for stopping by and remember if you can't shine... you can ALWAYS SHIMMER(z)!

Gorgeous card!!! What a great idea to add it to your background to make it pop! Love the lacey band you created. The colors are great and look so soft and really flatter the background you created! I am going to have to get some of that Shimmerz. It really finishes the card off well.

Love what you did with the shimmerz here! I only have one shimmerz angel wings I think - I have more on the way chocolate or something brown. I am so happy to be seeing new ideas with them!

Wow, this turned out great. Before I seen the second picture I thought it was done already. You could use it that way too and just write in something to someone on the inside. But the final result is beautiful.
