Oh, Shiny! - Shopping Our Stash

Hello Crafty Peeples!
Well this week at Shopping Our Stash, we are giving you the opportunity to get rid of some more of that shiny, glittered and glitz paper that you purchased for your Christmas Cards.  So we want you to create a project with elements that Shine, Shimmer and/or Sparkle!

I am not a Shine, Shimmer, or Sparkle kind of designer, so this was a real challenge for me.  I decided to keep the glitz to a minimum and my little heart strip stamp from Unity Stamp Company was the perfect image for CAS design.  I stamped it with Versamark and then heat embossed with Stamp n' Stuff Transparent Red Glitter Embossing Powder.

 The Victorian Grunge (digi) paper is by Vectoria Designs.  This was another item that was on an easel on my cutting table.  I printed it to use with a project using a Rick St. Dennis Image, but that design took a left turn in my brain and this beautiful paper no longer worked.  It does work wonderfully here as an element of this focal grouping.
The Swiss Dotted DP is from the Authentique "Seasons Autumn" Collection.
The plain brown CS is Bazzill and the red base CS is Neenah "Red Pepper" #80 CS.  The Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon

 I felt compelled to add one more glittered element, so, the two glittered hearts on the inside front cover.

Thanks for stopping by!  Can't wait to see your Shiny Projects in the Challenge!
