Just Add Ink #98 - Just Add Sparkle

Just Add Sparkle!  And that's just what I did!  Can you see it?!

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink came from the very very talented and beautiful Patrice Easton, from Spring Blossom Musings.  I love pretty things, so this was right up my alley!

I needed to make a card for my gorgeous little daughter, Charlotte, who is turning 6 on Christmas Eve...and as mother like daughter, she loves pretty things too - and loves her "diamonds" and bling - hence, I had to make her this "loaded to the max" card!
I have used Stampin' Up's Pick-A-Petal stamp, then cut out the petal and covered it in Crystal Effects and then sprinkled Stampin' Up's Chunky Sprinkles over it.
The #6, I found in my stash and just used a sponge dauber to rub some Pear Pizzazz into it and then covered the #6 in Crystal Effects as well.

I even extended myself this week by blowing off the dust off my much-neglected sewing machine....after a trial run on some scrap paper, I was off and sewing - all going well....until for some reason it just stopped sewing halfway and then picked up again before I realised.  So....I decided to unpick it all, sew it all without cotton (so it made the dots for me) and then hand-sewed it all!  As you can see, there was a reason why there was so much dust on my machine!  But I'm really happy with the effect and it really does "make a card" in real life (IRL)!

So thanks for coming to have a look....make sure you do go and check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's work and leave them some love - cos they all do such an amazing job!
