SHOPPING OUR STASH #218 - Mirror, Mirror

Good morning crafty peeps. SHOPPING OUR STASH has a new challenge starting today, and we challenge you to use something reflective on your project! Here's the card I made:

 Here's the inside:

I used foil cardstock for the main panel and stamped the owl and sentiment with Staz On ink. I frankensteined a large black rhinestone swirl and tucked the snippets under the main panel. I layered 2 different pieces of ribbon for the horizontal element. I had a really hard time trying to snap a decent picture because of that shiny panel. (Hey, apparently, it's a photo taking challenge within a challenge too!) 

So, grab that shiny foil paper, or anything with a reflective surface and join us at Shopping Our Stash! Please also check out the cool things that the ladies came up with and leave some bloggy love! Thanks for stopping by!
