Small and glittery

A small thank you card which will form part of a set… when I eventually complete it! The deadline is looming, too…

Just a reminder of the glitter trick used on the brad: take an ordinary brad, cover it with a glue dot and dip it in glitter. It’s (almost) a no-mess glitter technique! I used a Pretty in Pink brad on this one, so that the pink shows through slightly.
