Sparkle and Shine Challenge

July 1, 2015

I am SOOOO excited to announce that I am now a member of the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Design Team!  I am honored to be a part of this wonderful group of talented designers!  

This week we are excited to share a beautiful inspiration photo to inspire you in your creations. Your goal is to make a project reflecting how the photo inspires you!

The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift card to be used in the Pretty Pink Posh shop.  You can choose from amazing sequins and dies.

When I saw the little pinwheels in the inspiration photo, I knew what I wanted to do.  I remembered that I had a retired pinwheel die in my stash.  I searched and searched for it and when I found it, I was so excited.  I pulled out my Doddlebug Patriotic Picnic paper pack and picked three different patterns.  I ran the die through my Big Shot and assembled the pinwheels with silver brads from my stash.  

My base card is Whisper White card stock. (5 1/2 X 4 1/4)  I stamped a jar from the Avery Elle Set, Bottle it Up on the bottom left corner.  I stamped another jar on vellum and cut it out with the matching die.  I just received the star garland die in my happy mail this week from Reverse Confetti.  I cut 3 red garlands and adhered them on the jar before attaching the vellum.  Glue dots were used to add the pinwheels.  I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark and heat embossed it in Zing Rouge.  I love that red!  I added a few stars with blue ink.  Sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh top the blue stars for Sparkle and Shine!

Hope you are able to join us in this challenge. You have until  to get your entires in. Check out all of the beautiful cards from the design team on the blog here!
