Glitzy H{ippity} Hop

Glitz?!?! That's today challenge for this week's H{ippity} Hop....I don't do glitz well but I guess that's why they call it a challenge :) I really struggled to try to come up with an idea that worked. As always Julee's fabulous {Mojo Monday} sketch was there to give me the kick start I needed.
I stamped the love background from the {ippity} set Because of You with Versamark ink and then embossed it with heat and stick powder. A little glitter and voila! The glitter is really gorgeous in real life (it was hard to photograph). I just love this background stamp and it's perfect for all those valentines I'm going to have to make! Make sure you head on over to the {SCS forums} for all the details on this weeks challenge, lots of fun chit chat and a chance at some cool {ippity} prizes.
Thanks for stopping by!
