Simon Says - Sparkle and Shine

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created a gift box and matching card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Pillow + Bag and Vault Funky Floral Wreath Thinlits, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Shattered and Handwritten Thoughts and used Distress Rock Candy Glitter and Simon Says Gold Glitter cardstock to add lots of sparkle.

I smooshed a Custom Blend ink pad (Antique Linen/Old Paper Distress Reinkers and Speckled Egg/Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Reinkers) on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat and used to colour panels of Distress Watercolor card. I trimmed one of the panels to 4" x 5.1/4" and die-cut the pillow box from the other panels using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Pillow Box + Thinlits. I inked Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Shattered with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink and stamped over the panels.
I stamped the sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Handwritten Thoughts, inked with Versafine Onyx Black on to the card and pillow box panels, sprinkled with Ranger Black Embossing Powder and heat set. I assembled the pillow box using ScorTape and decorated with flowers and leaves die-cut from Distress Black Heavystock and Simon Says Gold Glitter cardstock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Funky Floral Wreath Thinlits.
I decorated the card panel with the same die-cuts, cut from Distress Black HeavyStock, Simon Says Gold Glitter Cardstock and Sizzix Light Green cardstock, covered with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. I matted on to a panel of Distress Black HeavyStock, trimmed 1/8" larger and fixed to a top folding A2 white card blank.
