Gold and Glimmer!

It is time for another Hot Mess card and this is card number 5.   The idea of Hot Mess ~ Success started with Kelly making a card and using the #hotmess on her Instagram post.  The general theme is to Get Messy and you will have Success!  Messiness can be almost anything that we come up with--glitter, alcohol inks, glimmer glitz, sponged backgrounds, etc., anything that is a bit messy.  We are a group of 4--Terry, Jeanette, Kelly and me. We will post a card each month on the 12th. Some times there is a theme-like this month.  And, other times we just get creative and messy! 

For this month's messiness, Kelly issued a challenge.  Make a card by using gold or silver with sparkle or glimmer.  I used Gina K Designs Gold Glitz Glitter Gel and a great stencil from TCW called Mini Sheet Music for the background. I love the texture of the Glitz and the musical pattern is so fun--perfect for Christmas Card!  I added the sentiment from Stampabilities O Holy Night as it is one of my absolute favorite Christmas Carols!

Here is the inside of my card, with a Christmas sentiment:

Here are the links to the other members of Hot Mess ~ Success.  Please be sure to check out Jeanette's, Terry's and Kelly's blogs. I am sure you will enjoy seeing how everyone got messy and was successful in making some great cards!   We will all be back each month, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on January 12th!
