thank you card

One more card to share with you tonight, once again inspired by the Sparkle and Shine class at Online Card Classes and the Paper Smooches May Challenge.

I loved how Julie Ebersole's covered the butterflies on her card with sticky embossing powder and Rock Candy Distress Glitter, so I decided to try it on this card with a Paper Smooches flower stamp. I actually didn't have a stamp big enough to stamp over the entire image, so I just masked off a rectangle and then took my Versamark ink pad directly to the paper.  It's so sparkly in person, even though it's hard for me to capture on camera. I actually think the quick photo I took with my phone inside last night captures the sparkle better than the photos I took outside, so I'm using that photo and a close up from outside. The differences in the colors is kind of crazy though.

I love how it looks and I'm already dreaming about doing the same thing with snowflakes on Christmas tags. It's never too early to plan, right? :)

The background was done with a Simon Says Stamp stencil and Bo Bunny glitter paste.

I think that's it for me tonight. I hope these last few posts sound ok. I've rushing through them as my computer wasn't cooperating and it took me a lot longer to do these than I had planned on. Oh well - cleaning up the mess from making these cards can wait until the weekend, right? But if you have any questions, let me know.

Happy Friday Eve!
