Twilight fever: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

What I know about the Twilight book series is very limited. I believe it's about non- traditional, glittery vampires and, I surmise from the endless movie trailers, werewolves.

Still, I'm reasonably knowledgeable about paper and glue and glitter, so I couldn't pass up this week's Drunken Stampers Twilight Challenge. One doesn't have to be educated about something, like this book series, to pretend, right? How would any of us get anything at all done if we always waited for useful knowledge?

This means that my card with the phrase "Real men Sparkle," could be anything. I dunno. I'm aware that I heard the phrase in reference to Twilight, but have no idea if it was a quote from the book or only catchphrase to sell t-shirts. It might have been a comedienne mocking a line in the movie?

Either way, the phrase is clearly endearing to me because after hearing it only once months ago it is still rolling randomly around in my brain.

I used papers from Die Cuts With a View, and cuts from Cricut's Winter Woodland and Tinker Bell cartridges. The heat embossing on the background is blue tinsel powder on a Stampin' Up wheel image. "Sparkle" is a glossed glitter paper also from DCWV.

And one last thing: Real men DO sparkle. I'm sure about this because all of the real men I know are covered in glitter that has been spread throughout the house by his wife or girlfriend or partner or child.

Shine on boys!
