Oh My That's Sparkly!

Hi Friends,
Yesterday I stopped by my LSS (since I was in the neighborhood, ahem..) and picked up this crazy sparkly, thick CS!  It's almost chipboard, it's so thick, which is awesome because it runs beautifully through my Big Shot.  The paper is American Crafts "Glitter Palette".  I sliced off a section of several of the colors and die cut some flowers and leaves to play with.

I checked out the Etsy Challenge for this week and this really bright and colorful handbag caught my eye so I chose as my color inspiration. 

Then I checked out this week's FS over on Splitcoast to find inspiration for a card to make so I could use these insanely sparkly flowers and came across this "Dogwood Fancy" card by "MBRCuties25" -- who is this weeks FS!  It worked great as a jumping off point so here is what I came up with:

The dies I used are Sizzix Paper Sculpting Daisy and the leafy branch is from SU's Bird and Branch punch.  The pom pom trim and sentiment are also SU.

 TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
