Virginia's glitter challenge

I had another moment to start on some Valentine cards and wanted to try this glitter method as shown from Jennifer here!  It really is easy and fun and I love the results!  I want to add it to the gallery for Virginia's glitter challenge.
I used a new to me Winnie & Walter Cutaway word die Hello and a sentiment from The Big, the Bold and the Happy set.  I snipped off the 's to just have the word valentine and black heat embossed onto vellum.  I love the black typewriter font with the big ombre and glittery hello!  The big hello is adhered to fun foam that I cut from the same word.

It's a hard one to photograph and a little hard to see against the white background (I tried various other colours, but that looked worse), but there are slender strips of confetti-like polka dots patterned paper on either side of the card front.  They have the same pinks and red dots as the glitter.  I finished with a glittery tiny red heart MS punch out.

Thanks for stopping by!
