Betsy’s Blossom Glimmers!

I had such a great time making this card yesterday, once I came home from taking my kids to the pool… I have to tire them out before I can have uninterrupted time :-)  So there were a few challenges that I thought I would play with for this card.  The first is the color inspiration provided by Dynamic Duos, then the sketch from Sweet Shop, and finally the theme from CAS-ual Fridays where its ALL about the GLITTER!!! You know I had to take on that challenge, me likie some glitter!!!
 I used my new most favorite stamp set- Betsy’s Blossom I just can’t get over that FANTASTIC flower in this set!!! So I decided to layer it and make a ring effect with the alternating colors.  I of course LOVE the simplistic layout and the white background really gives the flower burst and the bird images a POP!  I embossed the background layer with Elegant Lines folder and filled in all the empty spots with Dazzling Details, I also used tinted Dazzling Details on the bird, the wings, the layers of the flower burst as well.  This thing SHINES in the light!
I used Indigo Island and Real Red Classic Ink & Card Stock as well as Whisper White card stock.  I used the Friendly Phrases for the sentiment.  I hope you enjoy this card I just love how glittery it is.  I think I am going to give this card another go with a different color combo and stamp set, if possible.  Try these out for yourself~
