DCM Dare - How Random!




This week's Daring Card Makers' dare is "How Random!" Check out their site!

Well...Man O' Man!! was that a challenge! I thought I'd list many things I don't use at all or rarely, but I did add rubber stamps to the list because, I umm...need them. lol Of course, Dh did not choose that number and I was left with:
Glitter
Stickers
Flowers
Brads
Fibers

I almost said, "Oh, forget that!!!" lol All things I'd hope he'd not pick, he did. I even thought, well, no one will know stamps weren't picked, but I got a case of the guilts. Luckily, I had unopened MM stickers that were double-sided to stick glitter to, so I could kill two stinky birds with one stone. And the fiber, well, it's not a fiber, more of a tinsel thread, but it was in my fiber drawer, so it was fair game. The photo is wonky, but the scanner refused to show the glitter color and mirror cardstock.
Anyway, this was quite a lesson in "if you don't use it, get rid of it" because it will come back to haunt you! LOL

Hard task and well done! It's pretty.

I had glitter in my set and I'm not really into glitter, but your lettering has inspired me to be a bit more adventurous with it.
