Monochromatic Glimmery For You #FMS200

This card is super simple and clean - not my usual style I know, however I wanted all the GLITZ from the glimmer paper to shine.  When I showed this card to my hubbie I got the BEST reactionI've ever received from him! He was like 'WOW' and I was like 'WOW' at him! he really like the monochromatic look and the 'flipped' look of the greeting.
I  love the SPARKLE!
Coming soon - BLACK glimmer paper from the new Holiday Catalogue - its gorgeous!
