Best Wishes

Good Morning!!

I have a very glittery Sparkle N Sprinkle
 card to share with you today!
Do you like to use glitter?
I don't like it, I LOVE it!
It adds so much sparkle to a  project!
I do make a mess with it, 
usually the cats are glittered for a few
and I do stupid things, like dump it in my lap.
I do have a little secret though, 
I use hair spray after the glitter dries and it keeps it in place...
love that!

So, onto the card.
I made a square 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card white card stock base.
I added a chevron designer print to the top,
Next, I die cut a lattice and coated just the outer edges with
Parisian Mist Glitter was sprinkled on that.

While my glue was drying (which dries very fast)
I stamped Poppies Stamp Set 771P6 onto white card stock
I then used a Spellbinders die to cut the image out.

I colored the Poppies using Copic Markers.
I didn't stop there though,
but brushed a bit more of the Brushable Glue on the poppies,
then sprinkled with Cherry Lemonade glitter.

I used one of the many sentiments from the set,
stamped with Versamark 
and embossed with White embossing powder.

A pretty bow was added using ribbon from RRR.

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Wow! Gorgeous poppies! Wouldn't it be nice if they came up all glittery like that? Sometimes flowers do look glittery in the garden with the dew and morning sun. Oh, yes, glitter is a pretty mess. Good tip about the hairspray. I have used spray matte sealer before. It doesn't diminish the sparkle one bit!
