Sparkle N Sprinkle March Creative Challenge SNSSC17



March has arrived and it is time for a new challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges Blog.  This month the theme is “Anything Goes - WITH GLITTER”.  You can use any colors as long as you use glitter!!  Make sure you check the challenge blog for all the details, along with the winner of the February challenge.

I love the look of glitter so I took full advantage of this theme.  I used the single pansy image from the new Pansy set, along with the sentiment All Things Grow.


The pansies were heat embossed with Cerulean EP on top of Jasper Blue Velvet Glitter and additional color added with alcohol markers.  I cut them out and layered them.  The small dark blue flowers are die cut from dark blue cardstock covered with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter, colored with a dark blue alcohol marker, then layered and small silver blue pearls added to the centers.  The flowers are all arranged on a glittery flourish die cut and added to a lovely elegant card front covered with Bridal glitter and embossed with an embossing folder.  Even the sentiment is layered on glitter covered die cuts.

Your card doesn’t need quite this much glitter, but it does need a little sparkle.  You have until 8: oo p.m. EST on March 31st to link your project at the SNS Creative Challenges Blog for a chance at a stamp set of your choice.  We can’t wait to see what you create!!

This could not be any glitterier, Marie, nor could it be any prettier! Love the layers in the pansies, and how you colored them with glitter. The textured glitter really stands out - I have not done that yet - and am yearning to do so! A beautiful card! hugs, de
