Mini Monsters card! Fun & Easy Glitter, Glossy Accents, and Embossing Techniques

Hi everyone!  I just got this new cartridge and wanted to make something fun, but not Halloween, since it is July!  I am really loving the Mini Monsters Cartridge!  I used my gypsy, lots of glitter (I even mixed two colors to get a new color - see my video), Glossy accents, Cuttlebug and Heat Embossing.  I really had fun making this new card and exploring some new techniques!

Here are two videos showing the fun glitter techniques I used and the Glossy accents and embossing.  Hope you enjoy them!!
