Glittered wishes

I made a mistake I read my list of cards wrong and ended up making my Great nephew a card a whole month early and so I needed a quick card to go out the next day for my Great niece instead.  I still had my Martha Stewart glitter kit out from the last time I used it so I opened it up to see what was left in the pack and I had these 3 stems.  I had used the other flowers on the wreath I had made earlier, so I went to my punches and found this heart and flower that looked like a good size and ran it through my Xyron so I could add the glitter to it.

I couldn't find a paper that didn't seem too busy for the background so instead a did a little watercolor wash of the background instead of using paper. She is turning 21 this year, hope she likes it.


Spellbinders -- A2 Matting basics A die
Distress inks for watercoloring -- Tumbled glass, cracked pistachio and fossilized amber
Martha Stewart -- Glittered Botanical card kit and Heart and flower punches
SRM -- Thinking of you sentiment stickers

Do stop in tomorrow I have another Post for the Dies R Us blog, I think you will like it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have a blessed Sunday,

Connie

Oh, she'll like it! The sparkle is so pretty and I love the soft watercolor wash you did on the background. Hey, at least you remember to check your birthday list. I need to get mine more organized.

Love your CAS card..........I need to get myself a Xyron. Been thinking about it for years but now that I have a small nephew who loves stickers, I am seriously thinking of buying one.
