Shiny Happy Card By Trish Latimer

I thought I'd challenge myself to create something totally out of my comfort zone... a clean and simple card!
I think I nearly managed it.... 

OK, so I did do a little messy painty smearing for the panel across the middle, but there is still a big bit of white space around it, so that counts doesn't it?! I added sprinkles of black ultra high powder to the splattery details..

The theme on the blog this month is foil, so this is what I've done with my die cut word. Very difficult to capture the high shine in a picture, but this is super shiny silver in real life!

I cut the word from cardstock covered with adhesive sheet. I simply peeled away the backing paper, then pressed the foil down onto it. Such an easy way of  achieving that amazing shine!

Have a great day everyone!
