Sprinkles on Top!

It's a day of partying and celebration! Flourishes turned five this month and we want YOU to help us celebrate! Today we're ushering in a 2-4-6-8, Help Flourishes Celebrate the day with challenges at 2, at 4, at 6 and at 8PM! If you missed our 2PM Challenge, just click HERE or if you didn't tune in at 4PM, just click HERE to catch up! If you play, we have some FUN goodie bags for our winners! Are you ready for the 6PM Challenge?


For my creation I chose the With Gratitude flip set that is now available to everyone!


I began by stamping my image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The image was then colored with Copic markers.   I used Classic Rectangles Large  and Labels Twenty Two by Spellbinders.  I shaded around the image with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Wheat with the rectangle die still in place. 
I stamped the sentiment on patterned paper and popped it up at the bottom of the image.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch under that and finished it all off with a few buttons and twine.   The paper is from a K&CO pad I had in my stash.


My sprinkles on top started with Crystal Effects and clear micro beads on the flower centers.  Then I added ultra fine glitter on top to make it shine!  I also used a Quickie Glue Pen and added glitter randomly around the blossoms.

HOW TO PLAY: This challenge is about adding sprinkles onto your card or creation -- Glitter? Beads? Flower Soft? You choose! Just sprinkle on some fun and you'll be in the running!
