Upsy Daisy All a Glitter - Create with Connie & Mary Challenge

I made a similar card - a birthday card - not so long ago using this tissue acetate technique. I did not put a sentiment on this card because I couldn't decide on one. The challenge with Create with Connie & Mary this week is to create a card using lots of glitter.  I immediately thought of this technique.
Here's how I made the card.....
First of all, I stamped Upsy Daisy on a piece of acetate using Stazon ink.
Crystal Effects was generously applied to the backside of this piece of acetate.  Five or six drops of Marina Mist re-inker was added to the crystal effects and stirred with a toothpick until it was of uniform colour. Add dazzling diamonds to the mixture. Then a   wrinkled  piece of white tissue paper  was placed onto this mixture. After the tissue had dried, the acetate was mounted on black card stock using dimensionals, then  matted onto Whisper White card stock which had been liberally sponged with Marina Mist ink.  The entire unit was then mounted onto a Whisper White top note die (with dimensionals) which had also been liberally sponged with Marina Mist ink.
Here's a list of the materials used to make this card:
Stamp: Upsy Daisy
Ink: Marina Mist, Marina Mist re-inker, Stazon (black)
Paper: Acetate, Tissue Paper (white), Whisper White Card Stock, Basic Black Card Stock, Elegant Soiree Designer Paper
Accessories: Crystal Effects, Dazzling diamonds, Top Note Die and Big Shot, Dotted scallop ribbon border punch, dimensionals
