Sparkly Stuff!

I missed playing along in Merry Monday last week - having the flu knocked me out for most of the week, and with Mother's Day so close I really had to focus on that. I did still make a card for the challenge though - I'll share it with my card for THIS week's challenge, embossing. The background paper is one I made during my class at the library - I taught faux-faux patina. For how nervous I was before class started, I have to say I am so thoroughly enjoying it! I have the best group of women coming to play with paper :)

OK, so for this week's challenge:

Supplies: image from Bugaboo; sentiment from Reverse Confetti; Spectrum Noir markers; Mowed Lawn distress ink; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic; background: Studio Calico Seafoam mist, gold & silver EP; Sizzix embossing folder, Versamark

The ornament, her shoes, and earrings all have Dimensional Magic for added shine. 

And for last week's challenge, to use pine cones, greens, and the word Believe:

Supplies: Believe stamp from Stampendous; all other stamps from Neat & Tangled;  Distress inks in Festive Berries, Pine Needles, Gathered Twigs; watercolour paper & water brush; May Arts kraft twine; classic small circle Nesties; papers from stash

It figures you would pick the world's messiest technique to demo in a library. :D Gorgeous background, and such a fun image and sentiment! And of course I LOVE the background paper in the second one! Such a pretty card, too.
