HappY Boo to YoU!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today's card is made for Cute Cards Thursdays challenge to use "Black and Yellow". Well... you will not find many yellow cards on my blog. It is just not my color. For my card i choosed a piece of black Reminice paper, that has all over black sparkly swirls (still shows though the acetate on top) and used a piece of left over foil with some silver spider web on. I used Martha Stewart Zig Zag punch on the foil to give it some interest since there was not a very big piece left. I have stamped the cute Hanglar bug onto Neenah Ultra smooth card stock with Memento black ink and colored him/her with several yellows and grey Copic Sketch markers in. I thank added to the wings Yellow Stickles and some Star Dust to the top.
After that was done, i started to pick some embellishments, the flowers from Prima Marketings white Big Bloom Bucket had the perfect shape, kind of like the wings from the bug. All what i did was spritzed them with the Shimmerz Licorice Miniz Spritz and OMG... i think this is now one of my favorites. This Spritz leaves a wonderful visible silver shimmer on everything.

Recipe:
Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar (not available if you do not have a mailing address in Norway or Sweden)
