YNSC39 - Your Next Stamp Challenge!

It's that time again for a Your Next Stamp Challenge! This week our host Wendy is challenging us to use some Sparkle. Yes, you heard me correctly SPARKLE. Use anything to add some Sparkle (glitter / bling / shimmer / etc..) When I saw this challenge I got soooooo excited I squealed out loud with joy lol. I am the Sparkle Queen hehehe, or at least I like to think so :) 

For my card I used Berry Patch Ellie. I think this is one of the cutest stamps every!

I decided to create some homemade sparkle for this challenge.  I stamped my image and left in in my Nestabilites Circle.  While it was still in the die, I drew the circle around the stamped image and also added in the grass hill as well. 

I then used a larger Nestabilities to cut a larger circle around it.  I used an R08 Copics to color the outer ring and then used a small paintbrush and brushed on my Tombo Mono-Adhesive Glue (my absolute favorite glue). I allowed the glue to sit for a minute so it got really tacky, and finished it off by sprinkling it to death with Doodlebug glitter.  I also added sparkle to the strawberry's with my Red Atyou Spica Pen.

The DP is from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety paper pack. The green sparkle paper is from The Paper Studio and I just HAD to add it in *innocent look*.  I used my TCP Icing Cutup die for the bottom edge (which by the way is an awesome must have die!).  I finished it off with a strawberry button that I found at Hobby Lobby, and added some matching twine. The Green Flower charm was a gift from a friend from Bazzil and I was so happy to be able to include it in this card. 

I can not wait to see what everyone creates for this challenge.  We would love to see you all join in on the Challenge. We have 2 wonderful prizes for you to win.
