a touch of shimmer....

It is amazing what just a touch of glimmer, shimmer, shine will do for a person. Run your car through the car wash and see if it doesn't run just a tiny bit better. I know I could use a good buff and wax myself. Would cheer me right up!
The card is mostly muted soft blended tones but then there is just that touch of glimmer. A tiniest refraction of light... just a wink.... just a hint.

The Hero Arts Blog Hop is continuing through the end of the week and as impossible as it seems, it just keeps getting better and better. Tracey, V, Arlene and Sue are in line to amaze you with much more than just a hint of glimmer....

Start out at the Hero Arts Blog and enjoy your trip down Talent Lane.

as always, ENJOY! the Oz

  12. this is SUCH a beautiful card. I loved how you explained "shimmer" and you certainly translated that explanation perfectly onto your card. it is a pattern I think would also work well for sickness and sympathy which can be so difficult to make.
