Shimmer and Shine for Fall

I am excited about our new blog for Diane's Daydream Designs.
This week we are sponsoring the challenge at
"Anything Goes With a Twist"
The twist this week is shimmer and shine!
I put lots of shimmer mist and glitter on this card
 and made my own background (looks marbled) by scribbling an alcohol marker on a mat and spritzing with water and placing the paper on top.
So get your shimmer and shine cards ready for this challenge!!
Love the new fall images in the store -
 so perfect for the fall season!
