Hello....

 Well hello!  Hope your year is off to a great start.  We have been experiencing rain of biblical proportions of late so that means lots of time inside doing inside things like crafting, lol!   Didn't do much crafting over the holidays as there were other things to do and my husband decided to paint the ceiling in the room where I do my crafting.  Once he was done I got rid of a lot of things, did a little organzing and now I'm ready to craft!  I got a couple of cards made to share on the AJVD blog this week and next and then I made the card I'm sharing today.  This card is for the Paper Players, Sunday Stamps and Simon Says Stamp challenge (sparkle and shine).   Just a few days ago I received my Spellbinders Glimmer kit for December.  That is my new item for the Paper Players challenge.   The glimmer plates in this kit are so beautiful!  After foiling everything and die cutting the panel with my Spellbinders essentials rectangle die I colored the flowers and leaves very simply with Copic markers.  I was trying to capture the colors from the Sunday Stamps palette.  I think my blue could have been a bit darker so hopefully it pasts muster.  Once done I adhered the panel to a light gray cardstock base and then added lots of little silver pearls to the card for some additional shine. 


Was trying to capture the colors a little better in the second photo.  With it being so dark and rainy it has been hard to get good photos. 



Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

This is BEAUTIFUL! My mind glazes over as soon as someone says "foiling"...have no idea how to do that...but this is so simple and so pretty, maybe someday I will have a chance to learn it! Just stunning! Thanks for playing with my "new" challenge this week at the Paper Players!
