This week, our sponsor is Sparkle Creations. A few of the DT cards this week feature Sparkle stamps, including Shelby, of Color of Happy, our fab Guest Designer this month.
Melissa came up with yet another really cute sketch for us to play with this week. She always comes up with the best sketches! And, I used this Play Date Cafe challenge for the color palette.
The butterfly, leaves, flower, and sentiment stamps are all part of the Natural Beauties stamp set at Papertrey Ink. The rhinestone strip on the pink dp was from Wanda Cullen during a Color Throwdown blog hop. I don't think I've ever used a strip of embellies before. Now I get why people are doing that--easy, fun, and so pretty when you are done!
I stamped the flower twice, cut one out along the outer edge, then cut the second along the inner petals. I love that the center of the flower is a separate stamp. All the layers are popped up, and the entire flower is backed with a piece of burlap that I cut with a Spellbinders Blossom Nestabilities Die.
I thought about stamping something inside the card, but changed my mind. This card would be great for so many occasions. I can always stamp something in it later or just make it really personal and hand write everything inside.
Okay, so now you need to go head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and check out the other DT members' awesome creations, then make your own, so you can be in the drawing for the Sparkle Creations prize! Have fun, and Good Luck!
