The Flower Challenge is also celebrating its 2nd Birthday too and so we have an awesome prize for the winner of the challenge – $20 gift certificate from Topflight Stamps! I love this store and the unique variety of stamps and products they carry. They have lots of flowers stamps to choose from but also a wide variety of hard to find brands. Check them out here!

And as an added birthday bonus, a few generous design team members will be contributing a few stamp sets and stencil. The winner will also receive a Guest Designer spot too!

So on to my card for this month’s challenge. I used a variety of products to ensure the most sparkle possible.

I started by stamping the flowers from Carabelle Studio in Versamark ink and then heat embossing them with Emerald Creek Kiss the Fairy embossing powder. This powder is so pretty and has a pink shine to it that I thought it would be perfect for shimmery card.

I then took some pink shimmer sprays and used them to water color the flowers. Once they were dry I used a green shimmer spray for the background. It was a little bright so I added so blue shimmer spray and pulled the color down to give the background a wash look.

Once the background was dry, I added some gold spray. I used foam tape to adhere the  the back to the card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment and also adhered it with foam tape.

Here is a close up of the shimmer, its so hard to get a good picture that reflects the shine.
