It Worked!

When I saw the PTI MIM theme I thought to myself--I won't be entering this week.  I bought "Simple Stick" powder after using it in a class years ago, but couldn't get it to work at home.  After watching the video I decided to give it a try again.  I was pleasantly surprised to be successful with my first try & I love being able to glitter a stamped image without having to cover it with glue.  My stamps are PTI Through The Trees & Snowflake Flurries.  I've never done a matted window with my Nesties before, but this won't be the last time as I so love the look! This is also my Merry Monday entry--trees with bling. Thanks so much for stopping by.  
Edited to add: thinking this is CAS even with some layers, so entering Curtain Call.

Beautiful, Greta, absolutely eye-catching beautiful. The sparkling trees...swooooon. And the red framing, bow and bold sentiment: smashing! My use of glitter is pretty minimal (Stickles...plain ones), because I'm liable to make a mess with anything else, but this technique you've used has me thinking...Off for another gaze and admire! Hugs ~ c

Another beauty Greta! Very striking with your red window around the glistening trees. Nice to see the use of an older PTI set for your card too. - one of my faves! (I should have entered this one, as I love using that sticky powder! :)
