Make it Sparkle


The challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp is to "make it sparkle." The hat on this adorable Ellen Powell digi image is loaded with sparkly stickles. What little girl doesn't like to sparkle? I die cut the vanilla panel with a beaded oval from SB and sponged the tiny ovals with soft pink ink, and then made a tag for the image! I added some May Arts crochet trim, and some pearls and pink gemstones. The background was done with a Sizzix Damask ef and the image was fussy cut and popped up on the tag with dimensionals. The sentiment was heat-embossed with gold which adds another element of sparkle.

With all of the snippets of pink I used on this card, I'm also sharing it over at the Snippets Playground #136.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you do!

Saw this little bare b. bathing beauty in her hat as I scrolled up to see your later posts. This is just darling. Adore the hat and high heels and she's all in pinks. Beautiful lace trim on the tag, and love the embossing. The stenciling in the doily is pretty, and I always forget about doing that. Delightful card. TFS & Happy wkend.

Oh my goodness...isn't she adorable! All dressed up in her hat and heels...think she may have forgotten a few other essentials!

Wonderful card, Carol!
