And the Birds Sing

Ahh, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and flowers are blooming.  No, it's not springtime here in Minnesota but I DID get to spend some time in my craft room and the world is right once again.  I don't know about you but I need time in my craft room.  It re-charges me and brings balance to my life.

Today I am sharing a card inspired by the sketch at Global Design Project.  I first saw the sketch on Brian King's blog and knew I wanted to play along.  I formulated my card in my mind and smiled when I looked at inspiration cards and card submissions for the sketch as I was not alone in my thought to use snowflakes.  When the time came to make the card I was on the hunt for my "Let it Snow" sentiment to use on the diagonal banner.  Either I dreamt that I had that sentiment or really, really wished I did.  I scoured my stamps to no avail.  I decided to go with this fun little "sparkle" sentiment which I heat embossed in silver.  I layered that on silver foil sheet and added a bit of silver thread.  I randomly stamped snowflakes on the card base in silver and added a dry embossed panel of snowflakes below the banner.  The large snowflake was also heat embossed in silver on silver glimmer paper then die cut.  It was layered on the card with dimensionals and topped with a snowflake embellishment.



Here's a close up of all the bling on the card.

This is such a fun sketch, why not play along?

Happy Stamping,
Dana

  3. In my opinion Dana, "Sparkle" suits your card just as much as "Let it Snow" would have...if not more! I love it.
    I'm glad you found time to get to your craft room and also play along with us over at the Global Design Project. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous card. xo

  4. I agree with Louise - SPARKLE is perfect for your card! "Let it Snow" would have been okay, but your sentiment is quite unexpected...in an awesome way! Fabulous card :)
