Sketch 46: SPARKLE!


We're glitzin' it up this week for the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge! I love ANY chance to use glitter and sparkle, so I am on Cloud 9 today! ;)

My card starts with a Smokey Shadow base. I added on a piece of gorgeous patterned paper from my Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane/Life's Portrait 6x6 Paper Pad (PSST! We have more in stock! Plus BLOOMERS! Which you guys apparently LOOOOOVVVEEE, so I'll be reordering more, too. There are still a few in stock!). Love that aqua color...and how it looks like I added that soft white aged edging. Yeah, it just comes like that! The ribbon is our new Crochet Trim in Natural from May Arts. Pretty, huh? It's soft, too... Trust me. ;) I layered on a glittered star from MemrieMare's Etsy Shop. These are pretty, and they are made from recycled cardboard boxes. Bonus points for being green. ;) Anyway, the rose was created using the spiral rose technique that I talked about here. Onto my rose, this time, I added some Mono Aqua Glue using the wide application tip. I sprinkled on some Ultrafine Silver glitter from Stampendous to create a SPARKLY rose to fit the theme! This card was created to be a monogram card for my friend Missy, so I used another sparkly accent...an "m" from my Pink Paislee Glitter Alphas in Licorice.

Okay....now it's YOUR TURN to play! :)

This is so pretty, Mandy!! I love your spiral rose (can't wait to try that) and this sketch!

I don't have much in the way that sparkles, but gave it a go with a pretty new sparkle brad. I had to flip the sketch to let another panel peek through. Here it is:
