bloom & grow...CR84FN50#3 49

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 24, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope you all are having a super weekend! I love to vacation but it is always great to be home, sleeping in my own bed and loving my little four legged furry friends :) It's the final week for  the CR84FN50 Color Challenge and Shannon's last week as our Guest Designer. I would like to thank Shannon for sharing all her beautiful projects with us over the past month. If you haven't played along yet with CR84FN50 or would like to make another project, you still have nearly a week to do so.
I made this card for a dear blogging friend in celebration of her birthday. I combined pretty patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee collection along with stamps from the Artistic Outpost Bloom & Grow set.
Using the various dies from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set and patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Spring Jubilee collection, I made a few homespun blossoms of my own featured on the seed packet:

Lynne Phelps said...

This is so lovely, yet a lot brighter than your usual palette of subtle pastels! I really love your style! I was wondering if you could tell me how you add the glitter to make these gorgeous "sugar coated" flowers? I have just discovered glitter and have had some adhesive disasters. . . Everything was sparkling, especially the cats! My glitter either doesn't stck well or is so mired in glue that it doesn't look at all "sugar coated" when dry! I know I can do better but I need some guidance on technique. Thanks so much for all the inspiration you share on this blog.


Thank you so much for leaving a sweet comment!
