Lawnscaping Challenge #109

Hello everyone!!  Today I'm participating in the Lawnscaping Challenge #109.  It's all about the Sparkle and the Shine!!


It's also sponsored by Ellen Hutson.  Which if I made add, I've fallen completely head over heels in love with the Essentials by Ellen line of products!!  

Before I get to the card, there is something you must know about me...I am terrible at sequin placement.  I mean terrible.  Whenever I try it ends up looking either silly or way over done. 
( The problem may be that I don't have different sizes of sequins because I'm not bad at adding enamel dots and rhinestones?)  So coming up with a sparkly, shiny card was a challenge for me!

I used Lawn Fawn's Heres the Scoop stamp set with the co-ordinating dies, Cole's ABC's dies and the Stitched Puffy Cloud border dies to create this card.
Now in order to actually have sparkle and shine on this project I used Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush on the ice creams as well as a dollop of Glossy Accents on each.  I used Crystal Stickles on the hearts and Sakura Glitter pen and the Clear Glaze pen on the letters...also used some on the dots of the patterned paper!!  Here's a close up:
So, there it is. A sparkly, shiny card with NO sequins and NO rhinestones!!

I had a lot of fun with this!!
Hope you enjoyed!!

Until next time...stay crafty!!

  3. This card looks perfect. I love what you did with the scalloped, dotted top and bottom of the card. I really like the gradient color made on the word SWEET; also the size of the word.
