Core'dinations Thinking of You

Hi hard core croppers. I am submitting this card for the crop/challenge from Tracy Gruber. Her challenge ".... create a project using your stamps and Core!"  This is my submission for this category....

The finished card is 5 x 7. I cut the card stock to size and then ran the card stock through the embossing folder and then sanded. I die cut the feather and inkwell. Packing tape was attached to the back of the die cut areas and then the piece turned right side up and glitter added to the sticky tape. I rubbed my finger over it a bit to make sure it was secure. The picture really doesn't give the sparkly look of the glitter. To give a bit more dimension I used pumice stone distress ink heavily on two opposite corners and lightly on the embossed images, sanded the image again and stamped the sentiment. The finished piece was then popped up onto a blue mat, mirri card and then gray card stock to complete.
