The Third Card :-)

This is the third card for the Card Gift Box and also my first on-line challenge! 



Inspired by the Sparkle N Sprinkle Sketch Challenge and the Party Time Tuesday's "Bling It On" Challenge, the third of the gift cards was especially enjoyable to make. 

And yes, glitter is everywhere! All products are from SNS

For step-by-step directions in creating this card, please click here.


The olive background is stamped with "Lotus Flower Plant" and Gold Coast embossing powder


Two Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Squares S4-318 were used to create a frame, made sparkly by Green Nugget glitter, then replaced like a puzzle piece. 


The flower is the middle of "Flowers in a Frame" medallion, embossed with creamy, deep Dark Night EP, and more bling with Green Iris glitter


The "Seeds of Kindness" stamp is also embossed with Dark Night EP. This was a fun card to make! "Bling it On!"

Thanks for stopping by,

This is another stunning card. I just love the color combo but the embossing is really the star as far as I'm concerned. So much detail. I hope the recipient will appreciate all the love you put into the gift.

This is so pretty! I can't believe the sparkle on that frame! Green is my favorite color which makes it even more special. Wonderful card!
Thanks for playing along with us at Party Time Tuesdays. See you again soon.

I just posted my sketch card at S'n'S, Donna and, while I was tempted by your fabulous blue/green combo, I decided not to compete in that arena just yet. :-D This is another fabulous card with that combo and I'm loving it even more now that I see this one. Love the gold on your card!

Donna, this is Gorgeous! I love the gold embossing on the green and the puzzle piece is so sparkly and the flower/medallion is pretty. Love the colors and all the textures that you used from the Green Room in your Palace

How pretty to emboss and then give it that great edge. It really enhances your main image with the die cut too! Love your sentiment!
