Glitter n Sparkle DT - Glitter n Gems

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to my lovely new follower - Tracey Mallaghan - so nice to have you here!

Well, it's Sunday again - where does the time go?  Sunday means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our theme is a fun one - Glitter and Gems!  I hope you can join us!  I chose the adorable Cat in Flowers from Aurora Wings and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.


I had so much fun making this card and adding lots of fun elements.  First I will point out the glitter and gems since that's our theme!  I die-cut a doily shape and decorative border from green glitter foam using my Spellbinders Morroccan Accents and Cheery Lynn Siena Double Edge Border. It really sparkles when you see it in person!  

For gems, I used three brown gems in the upper left corner, two gem-flowers alongside, and a gem-filled brad in the largest yellow flower.  

My patterned paper is from Basic Grey Konnichiwa and Momenta. Other die cuts used are Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco B and Cheery Lynn Ivy Strip. The gorgeous ribbon was in a prize package I won from Crafty Ribbons - thank you, Ali!  The flowers are from I Am Roses, Recollections, and my stash.  I added a heart charm alongside the bow, which says Made with Love.  The sentiment ticket is from Digital Delights, and I added two sparkly 3-D butterfly stickers that I found at Dollarama (these are new).

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Glitter and Gems challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!

  21. That is a stunning Morocco die but I'm not sure what glitter foam is. Surely did make a beautiful look though, and I like the layering of the die with the corner as you've done it. Loving all the bright sunny colors and the ribbon & flowers - both the flowers themselves, but also the transparent ones at the side. So many pretty embellies with the leaf flourishes, the charm - and the lace. Wonderful card. TFS & hope you had a wonderful V. Day. Hugs

  22. Wow! Look at all those lovely layers and layers of goodness! This card has it all - glitz, floral girliness, and color! I really like how your center panel reminds me of stained glass.
