Sparkle & Shine Challenge #25



Happy March everyone! It's the first of the month which means that it is time for another challenge over on the Sparkle & Shine challenge blog. This month we are inspired by green shamrocks and gold glitter. Here is our challenge photo...

Here is the card that I came up with. I didn't think that I would probably give a St. Patrick's themed card to anyone, so I chose to go with the colors as my inspiration.

I started with the Oriental Orchid stamp set from Altenew and watercolored in the images. After that was dry I added some shimmer to the orchids with a Wink of Stella pen. Lastly I ran the panel through an embossing folder to achieve that basket weave look.

Then to pull in the gold glitter I added a strip of glitter tape and heat embossed the sentiment in gold on a strip of watercolored paper.

We'd love to have you come and join us in the challenge. One lucky random winner will win a $25 gift certificate to the Create A Smile store.
