The Flower Challenge #47 Add Sparkle

Hi there friends, it's time for another challenge again over at 'The Flower Challenge'. Our theme this month is 'Add Sparkle'. Such an easy peasy one I think as there are so many things which can add sparkle to a card. Gems, sequins, shiny embossing, glitter...well you get the idea I am sure ;)

Our Guest Designer this month is the amazing Darnell Knauss, or Dee as I like to call her...long story...don't ask lol ! ;) she is not only a fabulous card maker but such a complete hoot too! do visit her blog (if you haven't already...where have you been ?) and you will find much inspiration..... and lots of hilarity there too!

Anyway this is what I came up with, I used the Altenew 'Garden Picks 3D dies' and also the Altenew 'Fine Alphabet' dies too. I water coloured the panel behind the alphabet part and water coloured and layered all the flowers and leaves also. I used my favourite colours again you may have noticed lol.....my next card is different I promise!

I added lots of extra sparkle (irl is sparkles so much) by using my Glamour Dust and Diamond Dust  and also a sprinkling of sparkly sequins too. I hope you like it , do visit our blog and see what  amazing card Darnell made and the ones my team mates have made  too ;)

You make me blush, Vee! Thank you for your kind words! I can just imagine what a bedazzled delight your card is in person! Your watercoloring with your favorite colors is brilliant on the dimensional flowers and behind the HUGS cut out! Keep well, my friend! Hugs, Dee

I could definitely do with more sparkle in my life right now, and your card really hits the spot. Beautiful colours and sparkle. Diamond dust is my absolute favourite. Whenever I use it, me, the table, the carpet and the dog, all end up covered in it :o)

Those colors blend so well together, Viv. No wonder they're your favorites. And can't we all use a hug nowadays.
