Top 10 in the Ultimate Card Makers Showdown!!

It's time for the next round in the showdown and I'm still pinching myself!! The talent in this contest has been nothing short of amazing....every card in every round has been beautiful in their own way. I have really enjoyed playing along in this contest!!

Now the sketch!
When I saw this sketch the first thing that came to my mind was a tri-fold card so that's what I went with. I'm not gonna lie....this sketch was HHHAAARRRDDD for me. I made several cards before I settled on this card. I cut out the chandelier with my Cricut and then tapped it into my glue pad and added Martha Stewart Glitter to it. I think you can kinda see the glitter in the photo!
