Make It Monday #3

This week's challenge is about adding glitter strips to your project with Score-Tape.  Go to Nichole's blog to watch the technique video for this challenge.  I was really excited about this challenge because I have never added glitter to a card.  I have a pack of Martha Stewart glitter in lots of colors that I got at Michael's a long time ago during a sale.  But it just sat in my drawer, I was intimidated by it.  So today, with Nichole's challenge, I pulled the glitter out and made the following card:

I love it!  It was scary at first with the glitter but it was actually pretty easy.  This is a technique I will definitely use more.  This is also the first time I used Papertrey's Luck of the Irish stamp set (and I've had it almost a year).  I really like the sentiments in the set and I think the little clover added the perfect touch to this clean and simple card.  

Be sure to check out the other challenge submissions here.
