Artisan Award Blog Hop: Day 5

Today's card is my only re-make of an earlier card.  I stepped it up by adding rhinestones, changing my color scheme, and using a cool little trick to "glitter-fy" the sentiment.  I'm not sure if you can see the sparkle on the sentiment, but my upline taught me a cool technique a long time ago to be able to emboss over the ink color of your choice.  Ink your stamp in versamark first, then your ink color, and stamp.  The add your embossing powder and heat set.  I used iridescent ice for this card.  Isn't that a nifty trick to know??
