Get Right Back on Your Horse!

This card is for the Split Coast Try a New Technique Challenge - Tacky Glitter. The basic instructions are to lay down tacky tape in a pattern - then remove the paper on a few strips and add glitter - brush off - remove the paper from the other strips and add another color glitter. This was really fun and came out better than I expected!I used Saturday's Our Creative Corner Sketch that you can see here.

The horse and sentiment are from a funny animal 'butt' set called A Lil Behind by H&M stamps. This card is going postal to my friend that needs a little lift - hopefully it does the trick! At least it will make her smile!

And here's some great news! Tomorrow, Heather, owner of H&M Stamps, is putting all her stamps on sale - I said ALL - you might want to go over there tonight and make a list of what you want to purchase!!!
