CMM - Pretty in Pink Glitter

Hello and Welcome to my Card Making Monday post! I am so excited to share with you today's card. This card has a little story and comes with a warning, actually a tip or recommendation I should say ;-). Today's card uses a new to me tutorial which I will link under my tutorial tab. Just look for the picture of todays card (see warning below)
I just love how this card turned out! So feminine and I just love the clean look and all that pink!

I used glossy accents to attach my glitter and then once all my glitter dried I went back with another thin layer of glossy accents to seal it in. I thought I might add another layer of acetate but then i realized any loose glitter would just get trapped inbetween the two layers of acetate and make a mess so i thought sealing it in with glossy accents was the best choice.

here comes...the warning. lol. 
When I decided to attempt this card it was one of those sleepless nights. Hubby snoring and all. it was about 1am and I completed my first glitter acetate card by 2am.
This was my first attempt.

the warning...don't craft at 2am. lol yuck!

If only you had warned me would have saved me from making far too many really nasty looking cards while sleep deprived!
