Black Magic with a Twist and Shimmer and Some Awards!!!

Hi y'all! Hope everyone is having a great day!

I just want to remind everyone to play in the
Show us the Shimmer Challenge
on the Our Daily Bread designs Blog!

Today (Nov 15th) is the last day to have a chance to win a $30.00 store credit!!!
How cool would that be???
Come on and play!

I took a little time out tonight to play with a couple of Stampin'Up sets I just bought and I wanted to do the Black Magic technique. Karen Barber has a great tutorial on her blog that I followed. But I added some shimmer, thus Black Magic with a Twist and Shimmer! On black cardstock I stamped the image from A Cardinal Christmas with White ink. I heat set it and then colored it in with SU! colored pencils. Then I stamped the snowflake from Snow Swirled in white again and added details with a white gel pen. I heat set this again and sprayed the whole thing with Gold Glimmer Mist! I layered this onto Mellow Moss and distressed the edges. The Real Red strip is punched with Martha's border punch and embossed with a Cuttlebug border. I added three strips of narrow red organdy ribbon and a big red organdy bow. This was all added to the Real Red base card. I added the sentiment and gold pearls to finish the card!!!

Another Christmas card completed!!!
