Sparkle Card

June 9, 2009

Here is my card for the "sparkle" challenge over at the Crafty Secrets Forum. Darlene is this weeks host and gave us a few clues yesterday and here are the clues we were given:

1. 4th of July
2. diamonds
3. sequins
4. Twinkle
5. Flash
6. Shine

With all those clues, this is the card that I came up with.I used an image from the Seasonal Heartwarming Vintage Booklets "Proud To Be American" (although I am not an American) and added some Pastel Clear Ultra Fine Glitter to the stars and words around and in the oval. Background DP is from a stack that I purchased at Cosco some years back. I used a Quickie Glue stick to add some glitter on the fireworks on the DP. For the frame of the image, I used the Peony die from Spellbinders to cut red, white and blue cs. I then inter-twined the cut pieces to make my frame. And to finish off this card, I added ribbon to the image and some brads to the corners.

What a fun challenge.

Paper: Seasonal - Heartwarming Vintage Booklets, unknown DP, red, white and blue cs
Accessories: Peony die - Spellbinders, Quickie glue pen, Pastel Crystal ultra-fine glitter, ribbon and brads


  1. Very cool the way you intertwined the frames:)

  2. Yes, I like the way you intertwined the peony die cuts to make the frame.

  3. You are an honorary American in my book!! Especially with this gorgeous creation! I too love the intertwining and of course the sparkle is extra special.

  4. Love the frames behind the image! Super cool!!!
