Birthday Sparkle

Hi Everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  I've still been down and out with a cold, but I thought I'd pop in and quickly change the scenery to another bright, cheery card I made this weekend.  This one features the new set Amazing Wishes.


I found some scraps of Bo Bunny Valentine paper from last year when I was putting away some new Valentine paper I just bought, so I set it aside to use.  I stamped the large and small flower from Amazing Wishes several times in Cherry Cobbler on the pink patterned paper, then cut out, painted with a mixture of glitter and diamond glaze and then layered with dimensionals using some super cool red frosted pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty to accent the centers.  I stamped the Vintage Oval Frame in Cherry Cobbler on white cardstock and cut out with the Vintage Oval Die, then decided it was too white against the almost-but-not-quite-white designer paper.  So I cut another Vintage Oval out of vellum, layered it over the top, embossed the sentiment from Amazing Wishes in Cherry Cobbler, then outlined the frame with some pink liquid pearls.  The edges are done with a Martha Stewart Border punch and I added a row of Swarovski Crystals from Pizzazz Aplenty and some May Arts pink ruffly ribbon to finish it off.  Not sure if you can see all the sparkle in the photo, but this card positively shimmers in real life!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Oh, and before I go... just a little reminder that if you're wanting a chance to be the next Verve Guest Diva, the deadline for entry in our Triple Play Project Parade is tomorrow night,  {12/9/10}!!!

  5. This is a beauty, Julee. The colors are so cheery. You must have a very steady hand as you did an amazing job outlining with the liquid pearls. The flowers are gorgeous too. Love it.

    Hope you feel better soon.
