Sparkle N Sprinkle August Challenge



I can’t believe it is already August.  This means it is time for a new challenge at Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge Blog.   The August challenge is a color challenge.

For my card I used the new Dahlia set, along with the Joseph’s Coat With Patterned Paper Technique in the SNS Tips and Techniques for the background.


I embossed the images with Dark Night EP, colored, and cut them out.  I added Chantilly and Meadow Spark glitter and layered them on a background that was embossed with an embossing folder and then heat embossed with Sparkle EP.

Head on over to Challenge Blog for more inspiration from my fellow designers, along with the challenge details.  There are some exciting changes that you will want to check out.

Now it is time to see what you create with this color palette.

What a striking way to combine these colours. The sparkle brings lovely light to play and really highlights the flowers. The matting frames the image beautifully. Thanks for joining our 3-D It challenge at Craft your Passion challenges. I hope we see you again soon.
