For Someone So Special

Hi Bloggers.

I'm finished at the Trade Show now. I was demoing some new Ultra Fine Cosmic Shimmer Glitter. It's lovely and there's some great things you can do with it so watch out for it in the shops very soon.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Foundations Floral Dream Paper. I used the Doodle Daisies Mask and inked through using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask to extend the pattern. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Vintage Photo. I cut various sizes of Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 out of Tan and Milk Card. I inked through the die with Vintage Photo on all of them.

I made 3 flowers - 2 out of brown felt using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 4 and 1 out of Brown/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I used a couple of Pearl Swirls as a spray coming from the flower cluster.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the top and bottom left-hand corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze around the edges.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peak from the shows on Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by.
