Glittery flower card idea

Hi all
Here’s a card I’ve made to enter a couple of challenges today!

I spotted a couple of fun things going on over at In The Pink #14 – Pink and Bling
and at Link Up For Pink #10 – based on this inspiration pic:

Here’s the card I’ve made…

pink flower card birthday stamp Hero Arts challenge glitterI love the colours in the inpsiration photo, and happened to have the Papermania pad out on my crafty desk still from my last card, so I used some pretty rose paper on the kraft card and stamped the Hero Arts cling ‘Outline Magnolia’ (CG193).
I watercoloured it with my pencils and fussy cut it then added plenty of pink bubblegum Stickles for glitz and bling!

pink flower card birthday stamp Hero Arts challenge glitterI also used gold stickles in the centre of the flower for richness ;)
The pink stickles look a bit neon in my photo, but they aren’t quite so fluorescent in real life, haha, just bright and pretty, and like the flower is all ‘crystal touched’ with dew!

pink flower card birthday stamp Hero Arts challenge glitterI made the greeting with a diecut and embossed label (Spellbinders Shapeabilities ‘Ribbon Tags Trio 3′), stamped with a birthday sentiment and trimmed with ribbon, buttons and linen twine. (Sorry this pic’s turned out a bit blurry!)

I’m off to do some tidying up and sorting out in the crafty den then folks – I’ve had some new stash this week as a birthday treat (which is tomorrow, yay!) so I want to see if I can have a little purge of some older unused bits to make way for those new goodies.
And I can’t wait to get inky with those ;)

See you soon pals, thanks for stopping by as ever! Rx
