My niece's birthday is coming up, and when I recently came across WPlus9's "Sparkle and Shine" set, I knew I'd use it for this year's birthday card. She definitely leaves a "sparkle wherever [she] goes." Once I had the two circles embossed and die cut, I was thinking about how to arrange them, and remembered this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
I originally thought I'd use gold or silver embossing powder, but found a jar of Enchanted Gold in my stash that is loaded with glitter. The larger circle (cut with a Simon Says "Stitched Circle" die) is from WPlus9's set. The smaller one was stamped from a Simon Says set of the same name.
I made the banner from a piece of beautiful, shiny Washi tape that I picked up in Florida. I die cut that panel with a Simon Says "Stitched Rectangle, and mounted it on a Smoky Shadow card base. A few gold and silver sequins added the final touch.
Neither the shiny Washi tape nor the embossing powder show up as well in a photograph as they do IRL. I'm popping this into the Freshly Made Sketch pool just before Monday's deadline. Although I've been following this blog challenge for awhile, I think this is my first entry.
