Glitz Love

There seems to be a lot of talk about styles lately, and usually my style is like a moving target. I like to play with different types of styles. So for my two Glitz cards I did just that, played with styles. Both are "LOVE" cards, but two different styles.

For the first I went all out on the glam factor. Lots of red and black and even a little bling!
Don't you just love that frame? It's actually the Fancy Frames Rub-on. I was instantly in love with those frames, but it's one of those things I've had a hard time using it since I like them so much. Thankfully I still have two more.
for my second card I thought I'd play around with the Shabby side of things. I think the Vintage Love Whatnots are the perfect starting point.

I simply added a few buttons, a dyed doiley, and ribbon, but it all started with that great heart! It's a pretty interesting color combo, but I'm really happy with how the soft colors play against the green, brown and black.

Both are great cards! The first card just jumped out of my screen, grabbed me, and just won't let go! I think its that fun & bold red, white & black that's the lure......or it could be the frame or that fabby ribbon too! lol Obviously, I like it! :>
