Spring Fling

Hello and thanks for coming to visit me! Today I have a new project that features one of the new Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I am entering this card into the latest Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which is "In My Garden."

I decided to show off Spring Fling this time around, which has sequins, tiny rhinestones, and microbeads in springy shades of green, blue, purple, pink and gold. Remember, these Sparkle Blends are all limited edition, so if you see some that you like, grab them while you can. Also, you can only purchase them through White Rose Crafts LLC, and if you make it to the bottom of my post, you'll see that I have a special discount code for you. Here's a close up of Spring Fling.

I often will stamp out or print a bunch of digital images to color them on the go or when I watch TV, etc. That was the case for this lovely fairy from A Day for Daisies. She's called Growing a Flower, and I have had her colored for some time now...she just never made it on to a card. When I saw this mix of Sparkle Blends, I knew she was perfect for it.

To make my shaker windows, I used 3 Fitted Frames from Stampendous. I did put foam around each window individually, so that the sequin mixes would not get "lost." I also permanently adhered some sequins to the patterned paper so not all of the pieces would fall to the bottom of the windows.

I added a simple Laurel Burch sentiment and hand drew stitches all around the card. I think if I made this card again, I would use an embossing folder on the top layer, just for some additional texture, but I am quite pleased with how the completed card came out.

I enjoyed making a shaker card with several windows. This is the 2nd time I've done it, and I think the effect is great. I'll be sharing another project for Doodles Paper Playground very soon. Here's the discount code that I promised you:
