  58. I love the giant white spots on those bows that make them look so shiny. And then to put them with a silver cardstock that is that shiny is just so smart. It really adds to the realism of an already incredibly realistic stamp. And, of course, a shaker always adds to the fun of a card. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us and participating in Taheerah's advent calendar!
