Mojo & PTI Make It Monday

Today's card was based on this week's Papertrey Ink "Make It Monday" challenge.  Dawn McVey's video showed how to make your own custom glitter trim.  So the challenge was to make a card using your punches and/or dies for the glitter trim.  The layout for the card came from this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  The challenge to make a round or square card based on this week's sketch.  Here is the sketch for this week.

I changed it up a little by running my glitter border across the front of the card and adding my sentiment more in the middle.  It seemed to look better with the border I used.  As for the border I dug out my glitter, which I seldom use and made a mess!  I ended up with glitter everywhere.  Dawn used a Xyron machine for adding adhesive to her border.  I didn't have one so I smoothed out a white craft glue on to my punched border.  I think using the Xyron machine would be a lot neater.  Here is my card for this week.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Harvest Berries", SU "Whimsical Words" (retired)
Ink: SU Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Not Quite Night of Navy
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
