Glitter, Glitter, Everywhere!

I love making cards with stamps by Flourishes and I made this one for several challenges. For Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge FTTC92, Barbara challenged us to use glitter which I do not do often except to use a glitter pen. But for this I brought out the jar of glitter as well as the glitter pen.   Stamped this beautiful Amaryllis and colored it with Copics and a white pen and highlighted with a glitter pen. (Click to enlarge to better see the glitter.)I cut with square nesties and added brads. Attached to a green mat which I glittered. Used Ivory card base and added a green pattern strip edged with glitter which I layered with a sheer ribbon with metallic stripes. The other pattern mat-the plaid-was embossed for texture. I used the layout from a sketch from Papertake Weekly.  Finished with Birthday Sentiment.

Glitter is a wonderful accessory for a girl! Wear it proudly! LOL

That was clever to use glitter on the paper mat behind your amaryllis image. ;) The ribbon, too, has a nice sparkle to it.
