The next bit of news was that I was the Mashup Glamette for my submission to The Friday Mash-up last week! A great way to be recognized for the box I created for their challenge!
To celebrate, I decided to create another project for the Friday Mashup #185 - Let's Make it Sparkle!
I am having a Thankful for You Stamp Camp on Friday and I needed one more card! I loved the color combination in the Friday Mashup challenge, Blackberry Bliss, Garden Green and Island Indigo along with the Diamond Dust technique. A great combination to get the creativity flowing.
I have to admit, it took a me a while to figure out which images to use. I had already picked a sketch. I wanted to create something using the Fab Friday sketch challenge #53. I was a little late in creating the card for the actual challenge, but I liked the sketch and decided I needed to create something using the sketch.
So with this sketch in mind and the need for the sparkle, when I came across the Summer Silhouette stamp set new I had a winning combination!
The greeting is from Lots of Thanks. I used the Diamond Dust technique on the circle with the leaves and flowers. I actually embossed the circle and the flowers separately with iridescent ice. Then I fussy cut the flowers and glued them to the leaves on the circle with the Tombow multipurpose glue. This helped give the flowers a little dimension (very subtle).
Anyway, I am excited and thankful for all the recognition! It is great to be acknowledged for something that I love to do, even though it's not something I get to do all the time! Still have that day job thing going ;0).
