Mid Month November CAS Mix Up reminder!

I'm here today with a card for and a reminder of the November CAS Mix Up Challenge!  It's a fun one -   Glitter!   We could all use a little sparkle as winter approaches right?!
For my card I used stamping, clear glitter brush, markers, die cuts and Glossy Accents.
A birthday isn't complete without balloons right?!   I die cut the balloons out of Bristol Smoothe Surface paper.  I colored around the edges of one balloon at a time with a colored marker and blended the color over each balloon with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I did the same with the strings.  I used foam dots to layer the balloons over the flat bottom circle die.  Then I added Glossy accents over the balloons for more sparkle and let it dry.  
Here's a close up so you can see the glitter better (so hard to photograph all that shine!) 
You have until 11/25 to link up your cards - check out all the details on the CAS Mix Up challenge blog here!

What a bright, happy BD card. Those ballons are richly coloured and come alive with the Wink of Stella. They definitely do sparkle with the Glossy Accents. Beautiful birthday card. :D xx
