a double challenge

Hello. I surprised myself and stamped 2 cards today. However, you only get to see one now, because I'm charging my camera battery and can't get a picture of the 2nd one until that's done. This card follows the sketch challenge for this week on splitcoast, but I also needed a card for another A-Muse-a-palooza challenge, this one using some glitter or bling.

I decided to start with some glittery designer paper from a stack by Die Cuts With a View and build the colors around that. The under layers of black just make a nice frame for the rest. The two colors I chose to emphasize are regal rose and soft sky.

I stamped the tiger lilies from Rubbernecker with black stazon on regal rose and colored them with markers - regal rose and just a bit of apricot appeal near the center. The flower centers are coated with crystal effects and dazzling diamonds glitter.

The sentiment from A Muse is also stamped in black stazon.

I added white dots with a gel pen and glued the ribbon across the seam between the two colors of card stock. The image panel is raised on dimensional foam tape.

stamps: lilies (Rubbernecker), sentiment (A Muse)
ink: jet black stazon, regal rose, apricot appeal
paper: basic black, regal rose, soft sky, dp (DCWV)
other: white gel pen, ribbon (Michael's), crystal effects, dazzling diamonds glitter, dimensional foam tape

Thanks so much for stopping by.
