Scrappy-Go-Lucky's Blog Hop. Day 6

Hi everyone, 
          I'm sure one lucky person out there has guessed the theme and have gone over to Scrappy-Go-Lucky's original post and placed your answer for your chance to WIN one of the hot new cartridges, Winter Frolic, Rock Princess, Happy Hauntings and Country Life

Here is my card and the Instructions

Firstly the Black and White patterned paper is from Kasiercraft and it's Florentine. I then used SCAL for the Teacup, and those fantastic Cri-Kits Gel Pens for the Chinese Sign and the word tranquility. I layered it with black cardstock, then used Gunmetal Stickles around the black cardstock, all of the black card is Distress around the edges. I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Pearl) and sprayed then ran the card through that, which gives it a light shimmer effect, I find this is the only way to use Glimmer Mist, otherwise I end up with splotches on my work.

 For inside the card I used white cardstock, which I used Tim Holtz, Black Soot Distress Ink, around the edges and three black Rhinestones.

I finished it off using light weight silver ribbon around the card and a brad made from the i top maker.

Again head on over to Mandy's Original Post and leave a comment about what you might think the theme is and what your all time favorite cartridge is.

Hope everyone is having a great time on the blog hop.
