For the hop today, I've created .......
          70'S DISCO MAMA

This is my MOST favorite part of the card.....the GLITTER BALL!! I just used a very large bead from an old necklace and covered it with rhinestones and it spins. I used a hot glue gun to affix the crystals and filled in the blank areas with Stickles glitter. I must thank "The Rubber Cafe" for their product which is a wood stick and a small square of black something or other that makes putting on any kind of gem a breeze. NO burnt fingers!
I'm bummed out that the gorgeous silver glitter paper is not showing up bright & shiny!!
Here's a close up ,so you can read my journaling.
                                                            Side view of the card
                              Top view of the card so you can see the angles. I used the Ultimate Crafter's Box Folders to make the card design.....LOVE it!
