Star-Spangled Jumpsuit Elvis

So I'm blog surfing, and looking at this Elvis design sitting on my computer desk as a reminder to upload it next. That's when I realized that it was past midnight - and since I'm still up, I could upload today's design! Silly, I know - but I am thrilled easily (most of the time!) lol

I am loving the color of this Pewter Ultrafine Opaque Glitter and the Essential Glue Pad - both of which I got from CreativePlayStamps. I was asked if I use a fixative on the glitter. I don't. I tap it off by flicking the back of the cardstock a few times. Otheriwse, I think the Essential Glue Pad does okay keeping it on. Of course, it will come off if you rub on it alot - but *everyone* needs a little glitter in their life! ;)

FUN is the best way to describe the Elvis images from Cornish Heritage Farms. Here, I've used Jumpsuit Silhouette & Elvis Is... (backgrounder - though ths one is harder to see in the scan as it is stamped tone on tone Real Red.) I think the Elvis Is.. should have included "All American" and "Star-Spangled" along with all the other great words it says. :)

I'm hoping to get at least one more design together to celebrate the USA's Independence Day on July 4th - but just in case, I think Elvis has the star power to handle it! I was thinking about using this card as a birthday card and writing inside, "Thought you deserved a big star for you birthday!" :)
