Blue Glitter Peony

Hi friends!  I was in the mood to play with some glitter, and this turned out so soft and pretty, I decided to make it a sympathy card.

I started by cutting a piece of 6x6 double-sided Scor Tape sheet with the Lovely Peony Background die. I then cut out the Lovely Peony Outline die with white cardstock, and then I carefully adhered it to the adhesive peony background die cut. The open parts of the flower were covered with the gorgeous blue Fascination glitter, which I burnished in with my finger and then tapped off. All the excess glitter was returned to the jar and I set the flower aside while I made my card.

The card base is a white cardstock, and then I added a smaller layer of Kraft cardstock. I then cut a piece of the gorgeous soft blue paper from the Bellisima paper pad and adhered it to the Kraft layer. A small strip of Kraft cardstock was glued near the bottom of the blue paper, and then I stamped the sentiment from the With Sympathy set (JustRite) at the top. Finally, I affixed the glittery peony flower to the card.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Sparkle n Sprinkle - glitter, flocking, or embossing powder
Simon Says Stamp - Make it Sparkle
Craft Creations Challenges - Flower
Word Art Wednesday #144 - Anything Goes
