While at work yesterday, I was chomping at the bit about this Ways to Use It challenge. I hadn't been able to make a card with this week's sketch challenge, so I combined the two challenges for this card. Let me just say that I LOVE THIS CARD!
I stamped the image from Stem Silhouettes on Very Vanilla with StazOn. Next I applied those Twinkle Stickers randomly on the stems. This is layered on Gable Green and again on Pretty in Pink. I wrapped a piece of Pretty in Pink grosgrain around it for a sweet, soft look. I stamped the sentiment on Very Vanilla with Classic Basic Black and then stamped it again with my Essential Glue Pad (using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig). I sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on it and then layered it on Gable Green and Pretty in Pink.
I trimmed 1" off the right front panel and glued the stamped images to the card base. Isn't that Rubber Soul paper wonderful? It's two-sided! I ran a strip of 1/4" Sticky Strip down the inside panel and sprinkled clear micro beads on the tape. I pressed the beads down firmly with my fingers and shook off the rest. Believe me, those beads aren't going anywhere!
So, what do you think? I'd love to hear from you. TFL - Regina

Regina, I don't where to start; this is beautiful. I hope whoever receives this card appreciates all the work that went into it. I love the color combination of pink and green; it's fresh and soft. I also love the sparkle you added to the card with the microbeads and sticklers. Beautiful. TFS.
