Now for my card.

It is time to 'celebrate'
as it that time of the month
for Sparkle N Sprinkle to release all the new stamp sets and digital sets for the month!

I joined right in the celebration with my own
'celebrate' card!

I used two different stamp sets for my card,
the newly released and so beautiful Leafy Flower Spring Wreath
and another set from previous release that is a favorite of mine
called Demo Donna's Stylin' Sayings

I used Versamark and the 'sprinkles' stamp 
and randomly stamped around the edge of the card base.  
I first stamped the upper half, 
but left the center blank as I knew that is where I
was putting my wreath image.

I then embossed with Tinsel embossing powder.
The sentiment was stamped next, once again with Versamark
then embossed with Berry Bliss embossing powder.
The sentiment is part of the Demo Donna's Stylin' Sayings.

Once the sentiment was done, I continued stamping and embossing
the rest of the base randomly  the same as the  top part was done.

I used a Spellbinders Exquisite Circles die to stamp my image on.
Copics were used to color the  image.

Once the coloring was done, a Nuvo Medium Tip Glue Pen was used
on both the bow and flowers,
then glittered with Raspberry Soda glitter.
You can see the difference it makes adding the gorgeous glitter. 

To finish I added Nuvo Crystal Drops Carnation Pink to each flower center.

Thank you for visiting with me today and make sure to
do the blog hop and leave comments on each designers blog for your chance to win
a fabulous prize!

Next on the hop is the very talented Shona!
