Cardz TV "Bling it Up" challenge Day 2

Hi friends!
Today is day 2 of the Cardz TV Stamps Design Team Challenge #15, "Bling it Up" and I wanted to share with you this card I made using lots of glitter!!!

My card base and layer are from Bazzill and the patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye.
I stamped my two leaves and pumpkin which I had purchased long ago from Michael's with my momento tuxedo black ink and colored using my copics YG61, YG67, Y15, YR02, YR04 and YR09. I ran them through my xyron X machine and then added some fine clear glitter for the sparkle and bling! They are up on foam tape for dimension. For my sentiment on the front, I used "Count your Blessings!" from Mary's Cardz TV stamp set "Encouraging Thoughts"
For my sentiment on the inside of the card, I used "Happy Thanksgiving" from the Happy Days stamp set
To finish off the card I added some ribbon and ric-rac that I had in my stash and I added some cute leave stickers around the front of the card and in the inside. I also added two button stickers to the inside. I have been trying to use up my stash and supplies that I have had forever. You know once upon a time when we bought stickers galore and punches and just things we thought we would use and then they sat there forever? Ahhh I bet you are shaking your head saying" I know what you mean" LOL  So each time I create now, I am trying to incorporate something old that I have had for ages.
Well guys that is all I have for you today but the "Bling it Up" challenge is on until the 27th of September so I sure hope you join this challenge! Make sure to stop on over at Cardz TV to see all the beautiful projects that my design team sisters have created!
