Fun With Glossy Accents

Just a quick couple cards that highlight the fun you can have and make your cards "SHINE"...lol!!
Both cards used My Favorite Things Flower dies...I really love these dies:)!!  I die cut with paper from Michael's and Papertrey Ink letter dies. ( I was originally going to use these flowers for the most recent Play Date Cafe challenge...but thought that yellow centers would NOT be SPLASH of yellow...so theses are LEFTOVERS...lol)   I used Glossy Accents on each flower and on the letters.  Added Doodlebug chunky brads(chopped off the brad). I tried adding a background...just liked it better plain...thought there was enough going on with the flowers.   Here's a closer look at the glossy...
Just thought it looked fun!!
The second card is actually a card I made a LONG time ago for another Play Date Cafe Challenge that I never submitted...the colors being yellow, black and gray.  Funny thing...I actually WON that challenge with a different card...lol!!! This had same flowers, different papers and only glossed the word ...not the flowers.  Drew a border around it, as well.  The yellow flower middles are chunky brads, the black middles are stick on dots.
Here shows the gloss...
Just a fun thing to try...really changes the look of die cut letters...and now I've found...flowers:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
