Happy Birthday

Today I've been finishing off some cards and tags and here is my first for this months 
CAS Mix Up  challenge - Glitter.... there is still time to join in the sparkly fun, so pop over to the blog and check out what the design team have been creating.
I made the glitter panel by using the negative of the die cut or the bits left in the die when you peel away the die cut - the little pieces were all neatly just sitting there so I cut a large piece of double sided tape and pressed it on the die.   Then when I peeled it off the little bits all stuck there with the sticky gaps just waiting for me to add the fine purple glitter.  That was the easy part - now what to do with it to make a card...  
I positioned it against a white card base in my Misti so I could figure where to stamp and heat emboss my sentiment in silver.  Then I couldn't get the protective backing off the glittery panel - so I stuck on another layer of double sided tape and trimmed around it.  That worked well and to finish I stamped and fussy cut a flower on scrap from my stash - made with drawing inks on glossy card and added some micro beads to the center.  
I am also posting to Stamplorations November Cutplorations challenge -  I love purple shades too.  Thanks for taking a peek
