Glitter Ribbons

Technique Junkie recent newsletter had a technique of glitter ribbons.  I morphed it a little using cardstock ran through my Xyron and carefully cutting the background.  If you don't get the TJ newsletter, you should.  There is a lot more info on that than most magazines.  Anyway, I used a bunch of glitter I have on hand.  I don't remember where the tree stamp is from (I have tons of tree stamps)  I used flower soft on it and some corner punched Stardream cardstock.  The glittery leaf is one I found at Hobby Lobby.  It really is a lot prettier in real life!

GUS:  In case you are wondering Hubbies Birthday dog Gus is doing great.  He is pretty much housebroke (at least no accidents for a long time) is still very affectionate and DH LOVES his dog to death.  Of course Gus loves everyone but I think realizes DH was the one that picked him, or was it the other way around?

His nickname is Frog Legs!

And he lets us know when he wants to come back in.  My son says we know how much he grows by the height of the footprints.  Do you suppose it's hint that I need to clean the windows?

Great idea to use the Xyron. I have one and need to bring it down to my other place. Love the colors and the tree stamp. Great job and tip!

Hi... I just found your blog. I love this card! I've never used Flower Soft... and don't even own any at this time, but I was wondering if you used more than one color of it on this tree to make it look so nice or if the shading is just from the depth of it and the shadows happened in the picture. Thanks!!

Hey Colorado Crafter. I used the Flower Soft called Autumn that has the mix of the colors. It is the only color I have and really not sure if I will order anymore.
