Etsy for Animals (EFA) is a team of artisans and crafters who support animal causes. Each month, there is a team challenge and the creations are showcased on the EFA challenge blog. Members are encouraged to submit challenge ideas. This month, the challenge is one that I submitted: January Jackpot! The challenge is to use gold somewhere in your item.
Lately, I've been playing a lot with my micro-fine glitters. When I was a girl, I was attracted to sparkly, flecked things. (Do you remember jelly shoes? I always wanted the sparkly ones!) I was terrible at applying glitter to my art though. It made such a mess. I used to use nail-polish to paint intead of using glitter and glue. (I also have a hard time waiting for glue to dry.)
Well, now I am armed with some super tacky tape from Scor Pal. My glitter stays in place the first time! (Okay, it's still a little messy, but I can handle it now!) I made this card with gold and red glitter and gold ribbon. (Shh, I made an extra for my husband for this Valentine's. I'm SO proud of the poem I've composed.)
10% of the proceeds of this card will go to SOAR: Southern Ontario Animal Rescue. This charity rescues dogs and finds them foster homes until later adoption. It is a very small organization and it needs all the help it can get - even my pennies per card!
Remember to check out the EFA challenge blog for more January Jackpot entries! I love always finding such diversity from a single theme!
