Just Hangin Out

Hi Everyone!
I hope your Monday is treating you well. Today's card is a Penny Black card. I don't often do PB because my supply of PB stamps is limited;  but a very sweet person stamped this image out for me so I could vary things a bit. Here's a frontal below:

Ahhh that's better. As most of you know I am not a glittery person. (dont like the mess) but the PB challenge called for glitter (*gasp*) and glitz.So I dug out my glitter jars, dusted them off and grabbed the glue.By the way,  If you're looking for the glitter it's in the flower centers. C'mon folks, baby steps here. lol
a close up:
Can you see it? Look closer, it's sparkly. :-)
My recipe is:
DPs: Mainly DCWV
Image: Penny Black
Colors: Prismacolor pencils
Bling: flowers, gems, pearls: Recollection
Glitter: Doodlebug Designs
Scalloped Ovals: Nestabilities
Punch: Fiskars

Some more details:

I would like to enter this in a few challenges:
PB Allsorts: Glitter and Glitz
Paper Sundaes: 4 flowers, 3 buttons, 2 DP
Sentimental Sundays: Ribbon or lace

And for those of you feeling bad that you didn't get a chance to make a card today, let me show you a couple of pics of my card in making:
See, you may not have been able to make a card, but that also means no mess! (I really should have taken a pic of the floor as that's where mosty of my mess ends up!)

For any who may be interested, I'm also passing the word that PB Allsorts is having a DT call. You can find the info here:

Have a great week!

You have been busy again! Nice Card. The glitter looks good. Just the right amount. A little glitter is good. I tend to make a mess and use too much. The image is cute. As always great card

Great card, Dorcas! Way to go with the glitter, I really love the look, but you're right---very messy (almost not worth the effort). However, do love the look of those flowers and also that great pearl outline on the hammock.
