CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC14

Hi Friends-

I am playing along today with this week's challenge posted on the CAS-ual Friday's blog.  This weeks challenge is to add glitz and glitter to a project using Glue Dots or Glue Strips.  I decided to use Glue strips to make the following card:

Rainbow Color Card

I applied Glue Strips to a piece of white cardstock and added red glitter to the line.  A tip to keep the glitter in check is to wipe the card with a piece of flannel or felt after applying each color to keep the sparkle in its place. I repeated to process for the other rainbow colors, stamped the sentiment in black ink and added buttons in a rainbow of colors for a little extra dimension.  I adhered the card front to a black card base.   My craft room looks like it has been to Mardi Gras, but I am pretty pleased with the end result.  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my sparkly card!  Have a great week!
