Hello from Penrith

Well that was an enjoyable first day of my holiday, we spent it shopping and exploring Penrith town centre. There is a food and drink festival on this weekend so there was plenty of  stands with samples to try and buy. We sat watching a band playing for an hour or so and then picked up a takeaway on the way back to our chalet.
Now I've got time to play as we watch a DVD left by the owners of the chalet, very good idea that. I must say the owners have thought of our every need.
Returning to the card I've posted, this was one of Joanne's favourites on the Tattered Lace show.
To achieve the effect, first die-cut the image using the release paper from some double-sided adhesive. Then attach one side of a square of adhesive sheet to some white card. Remove the other side to reveal the sticky layer, place the die-cut shape on top making sure it's well stuck down. Cover the whole piece in white glitter, shake off excess. Carefully remove the shape, then cover with black glitter, this will stick to the previously protected area.
Mount and add ribbon to finish the card.
To see what I have been recently working on watch Create and craft on Tuesday's Spellbinder shows.
I've been a really lucky girl as you will see.
Happy Crafting.
