Shopping our Stash #96, Redux - Not Your Normal Paper


Welcome to Week 2 of our Specialty Paper challenge at Shopping our Stash - life gets busy sometimes, and we could all use an extended deadline now & then! Like I'd said last week, I ended up pulling out a LOT of fun papers & couldn't resist making a second card for this challenge:


Supplies: Pre-coloured digi image from Doodle Pantry; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; mulberry paper; Recollections green cardstock; iridescent & yellow fabric glitter glue

Since it was getting close to Easter, I wanted to make a few multi-purpose Easter-ish cards - lilies are also nice for sympathy cards. The mulberry paper I found while I was looking for something else, and it gave just the right softened look to the background, and lets the flower shine. I used a paintbrush to smooth on the iridescent glitter on the petals, and a toothpick to dot the yellow glitter onto the stamens. 


This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until Monday April 15th - hey, that's my little boy's birthday! I'll officially be a mother of 2 teenagers. (Oh, dear lord...uh-oh!)

xoxo,
Jessi

Edited to add: While creating my card & writing up my post, I had intended to enter this into Doodle Pantry's current challenge as well - and then completely forgot to mention it in the post (or link it up)...d'oh! Challenge #33 is to use a Doodle Pantry image, and it is open until April 24th.

Oh how pretty - and the glitter was just the finishing element you needed to make this card pop. Great job. Thanks for joining us at DPDC33 this month.
