I did it! A good glimmer mist photo!

I *FINALLY* got a good photo of this glimmer mist! I think it helps to take photos when it's daylight out, my stamp room is a lot brighter!

Here's more of the Stampin Up Best Blossom's 2006 Sell-a-Bration set combined with Cosmo Cricket's Gretel "Autumn" patterned paper. I sprayed a 1/2 sheet of it with Tattered Angel's "Walnut Gold" Glimmer mist on Friday and have been playing with the paper every day since. Chelemom had asked how I prevented my paper from warping, and for me, I've found it works best to spray it down and then use a heat gun immediately to dry it. If anyone has found a better way of doing this, please post a comment and let us know! I also have been sewing the edges of the paper down so that it stays neatly down on my paper. Or just distress the edges of the paper to give it a torn, vintage look. On this card I also took Martha Stewart yellow gold glitter and ran a line of it down the middle of my May Arts ribbon to add interest and sparkle. I'm WAY into glitter right now. I have it everywhere.
I have lots more to post on my junking finds this weekend but I need to take photos, so more tomorrow. Oh, and check out Chelemom (Michelle's) blog, she's doing a REALLY FUN blog candy giveaway!
