Sprinkles Challenge

Wow...has it been a busy week here....
But I found some time to do a challenge at Flourishes....
they are having a Birthday Celebration for being in business for 5 years....
I think I have been with them from almost the beginning....
I sure have alot of their stamps....


This challenge is to use "Sprinkles"......
it can be beads, glitter, gems, etc...I think you get the idea...
I choose my Flourish "Sweetpeas" stamp set...
I added a bit of lace and pompoms along the edge....
cut my oval with a Spellbinders and the leaf vine with a Cheery Lyn die...
the birdie is a Heide Swapp "resist" piece....
I rubbed TH Victorian Velvet ink on
 and the resist is the dots.....
my sprinkles are my gems...
the sentiment is part of the sweetpeas set....
I stamped part of it outside and the rest inside the card...
the paper is my newest from Prima called "Almanac"
Edited to add:  the sweetpea image was stamped with versamark
on my DS paper, and then embossed with a Ranger Black
"puff" embossing powder.....
not sure if you can get it anymore, so I hoard it..LOL

Very pretty Diane. Great choice of colors and papers. I am not a fan of the little poms on a card but on this card they are gorgeous!
