New Year and New Challenge

Happy New Year!!  Can you believe it is 2013 already?  It is also the beginning of a new month so we have a new challenge for you at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge Blog.  Barbara has a new sketch for that I know you will like.

I spent most of my holiday making wedding plans and creating invitations with my daughter, who recently got engaged.  I guess this put me in the mood for flowers, sunshine, and love so here is my take on the sketch.

I used to different embossing folders to create the background pieces.  The window was created using Spellbinders’ Classic Ovals and I used a border punch, "Tear-ific" Tape, and Black Ice Glitter for the border.  I used the Benjamin Bunny stamp set for the images and sentiment.  I added Sunny Daze Glitter to the flower petals using a glue pen and used SNS Dimensional Glue to add tiny yellow glass beads to the centers.  The sentiment and little shaker squares are heat embossed with Ebony Spark EP.  Full details how to make this card can be found at the SNS Gallery, here.

Now head on over to the Creative Challenge Blog to get all the details and rules and see what my fellow designers created with this sketch.
