Well the new challenge at the paperlane is here again. This months challenge is Glitz and Sparkle. So grab your glitters, stickles and stamps, and get stamping, cutting, glittering, and colouring, to show us what lovely cards etc you can create. We look forward, as we always do every month to see what you have in store for us. On this challenge you can now use Molly Blooms or Magnolia Stamps. Why don't you pop on over to the paperlane challenge blogspot to see what the girls on the DT have made for this challenge.
For my card I choose to use a Magnolia stamp. Thought I would try a different fold as I have not used this style before. I think it worked out well the card just all came together. I didn't have a definite idea of how I wanted the finished card to look . You know sometimes you plan the card out in you head, and know how you want the card to look when you finish. Well this was not one of them cards. I knew what fold style I wanted to use and that was about all.
I am still in my toad stool phase. It felt funny colouring it blue tho and I nearly gave up and scrapped it in favour of a red and white toad stool. But am glad I persevered with the blue.
The lost and found paper is my absolute favorite. It already has lots of sparkle but I couldn't restrain myself from adding more to it in the form of stickles and pearl pen, also crystals.
Even the paper rosettes I made got the stickles, glitter, and crystals makeover with some cute organza ribbon treatment for a little extra special look .
this is the inside of the card.
I wanted the card to be able to fold flat. The paper rosette would have been to bulky.
But I wanted to tie in the front of the card with the inside. So I used some of the spot ribbon to make the rosette for the inside. I just used a running stitch along edge and gathered it to form the rosette then added organza ribbon and another sparkley crystal to the center.
I hope you like it and that I have inspired you to join us this month at
