Twinkling Tuesday...on Wednesday

Work has been absolutely crazy this week. I usually only work 2 hours on Tuesdays and yesterday I ended up being at work for 6 hours so I never found time to get my Twinkling Tuesday card posted. The sketch this week was made by Jacky, Madelynn's younger brother.
Here is the sketch:




Here is my card: (I plan on taking a better picture later today when I have good natural light)
The orange marble paper was made using the new Shimmerz Spritz! I LOVE this stuff. For the marbled look I sprayed 2 colors of Shimmerz Spritz (Tuscan Sun and Mango Madness) onto glossy paper. I let it sit for 15-20 seconds and then I rubbed over the whole thing with a kleenex. I would probably recommend paper towels for this but I didn't have any in my stamp room at the time so I just used Kleenex. This technique gives a gorgeous shimmery marbled look.
It is really hard to tell from the picture but the darker marbled areas have a beautiful shimmer. The sentiment and butterfly stamps are from DRS Designs.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

gorgeous!! is it better than glimmer mist - i got some of that stuff in pearl and have been hugely disappointed in it!

and i'm slightly jealous that you have an apron lace punch. i can't find it locally --- guess i'll have to break down and order it online!

hope work has slowed down for you some! i am in awe of how you work your schedule!
