Glittery & Pearled Flowers...

...that is what I have to share with you today!  It is my card for this week's CPS Sketch 186, and I loved using the sketch this week.  I took a bit of creative liberty with it, but I still think you can tell that my card derived from the sketch.  Here it is:
"Together" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Making Memories
Rub-on: Creative Imaginations
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Zva Creative
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Glitter: DecoArt
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold aqua cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a pink floral paper block, and adhere it to the front of the card.  Round the bottom corners of a cream cardstock block, and add the rub-on sentiment to the bottom of it.  Coat the flowers in spray adhesive and cover in glitter.  Shake off the excess glitter, and adhere the flowers to the top of the card.  Accent the flowers with pearls.  Tie a bow from dotted ribbon, tuck in between the flowers on the right side, and accent the top with a pearl.  Add three pearls to the rub-on sentiment.   

You may have noticed, but I changed my blog color back to white.  Even though my images look better on black, I just prefer the clean look of a white background.  So- I will just deal with it!! Tee hee! 

I also have a winner to announce for my Skipping Stones Design "Wise Men" stamp giveaway.  Drumroll please....the winner is:
  So, Kelley...the random number generator picked you...picked you!  Tee hee!  Email me your address information to jnllawson @ bresnan.net.  (Sorry about the spaces...but I get enough junk mail as it is!)  

Well, that is all I have for today.  Tomorrow is World Card Making day...and I will have a fun announcement and a card to share with you.  So, hop on back over!!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
