Two cards in one day? Pass me a cold flannel!

Ok, so I'm having that last-minute panic before going on holiday.  You know, that moment when you realise that there's only 5 days to go and you still have to: get your hair cut; then dye it; go for a sunbed or two; give yourself a shellac pedicure; go and buy all your holiday essentials - not least of which is some clothes that actually fit; pack the suitcase; print out the tickets; check in online; oh.... and lose 3 stones. 

Ok, so I'm probably not going to manage that last one.  So instead I made another card to cheer myself up.  Here it is:

I used some gorgeous Lavinia stamps; Distress Inks; glittery Wow! embossing powders; and some glitter card, glitter and sparkly gems.  The bright yellow, orange and red Distress Inks were totally out of my normal comfort zone (I'm usually a pinks, purples and blues kinda crafter).  But I actually quite like the effect when using the black silhouette stamp.  So perhaps I'll start to get a bit more experimental with colours.

This card is my entry for the following challenges:
