Life that Sparkles

Happy Thursday!  Today I have a card to share with you using the new Hope Blooms set and this week's SCS sketch challenge {SC329}.

Some gorgeous new Webster's Pages paper arrived in my mailbox the other day and I just had to play with this rose print paper as soon as possible!  I wanted a soft, aged look, so I stitched a piece of vellum over the paper, then sponged with antique linen and vintage photo distress ink.  I embossed the life is good sentiment from Hope Blooms on the vellum, then used a pearl border sticker as a divider.  The flowers are also from Hope Blooms and are embossed onto pink card stock, then cut out, Stickled and dusted with glass glitter.  Then, as if that wasn't quite enough sparkle, I added a little Fruit Punch Stickles to the edges of the whole panel and then covered with more glass glitter!

The scallop rectangle is cut from Kraft Glassine paper and I added some liquid pearls to each scallop.  The background layer is stitched, sponged and distressed, then has a brown mat and is on a 4.25 x 5.5" card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a fabulous day!
