ID: Flourishes - Day 4 - Glitter - A Weed card
5"w x 7"h

Created: March 11, 2010

Over on Flourishes website, they've opened a new shop and are doing a daily challenge on their blog with prizes to celebrate the opening. This is day 4 and you can find links to the previous days on my blog or clicking on my Misc Challenges Gallery below. Today's challenge was to use Glitter. Right up my alley, since it's hard for me not to put glitter or Bling on something.

So to start I used a Nestabilities Labels 8 die to cut out the center from white cardstock. Ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Sizzix Flower die from the Floral/paisley set #655836. I brayered the high points, and it would seem some of the low points too, with Distress Tattered Rose and embossed with Kaleidoscope. Edged the opening with a Krylon silver leafing pen.

 I rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) onto white cardstock with Versafine Smokey Grey and embossed with detail silver. Rubber stamped the floral sprig (The Stamp Barn #CFLR024m) with the smokey grey and clear embossed it. Colored the larger flowers and leaves with Ritz micro fine glitter (Stardust/Rose combo and Peridot). Sponged some Weathered Wood around the edges. Added a rose toned faux rhinestone in the centers. Colored the smaller floral sprig with Tombows.

Cut a narrow frame to support my decorative frame and raise it up using mat board (don't like foam tape). Adhered it to my quote piece and then onto an aqua toned layer then edge to edge to my main card.
