Glitter Flowers

Good Morning everyone, i hope you are all keeping warm with this cold snap.  

Im going to try different layouts this year so joined in a couple of sketch challenges and it also helped me with making this card for my sister in law.  Ive also recently come into some amazing glitter card from Jelly bean so been having fun playing with it. 

6x6 White card.  I then die cut and made up the flower using champagne glitter card, i made up the card layout following a sketch, stamped greeting in grey and some matting and layering.  I broke up the colour with some distress oxide inked foliage and matching green gems. 

Close up of the flowers, showing its sparkle.  this card is actually completely smooth so lovely for die cutting. 

Onto two thank you cards for friends that sent me some lovely craft goodies to play with.

6x6 scalloped card blank.  Pre dotty embossed card from payper box, matted onto teal glitter card, die cut sentiment, i made up the flower with some orange stamens, then found a scrap of brusho/pixie powder card in matching orangey colours for the leaves. .  Gold pearls to finish.

Close up of the flower

Same as above but red and pale green combo. 

You can see the glittering of the card in the close up. 

Items Used:
