Something Shiny!

Our 2011 family Christmas card

This is what happens when you try to send a greeting card from the poster family for Attention Deficit Disorder.



The envelope is embossed with Cuttlebug's diamond embossing folder.

 I drew a few iridescent stars with a Gelly Roll silver stardust pen.

The border is drawn with the same Gelly Roll pen. I did a pretty major modification on the pen holder for my Craft Robo to make it accommodate that kind of pen.

The inside says "Ohhhh.....something shiny!

The design inspiration for the spinner came from Ramin Razani.
