Sparkles, sparkles, sparkles... I love sparkles!

An easy card for Mother's Day or a Birthday.  Who wouldn't love a pretty card chalk full of itty bitty sparkles?  I know I would.

Here is the second card we made in my April "Brushed" card workshop. 

This is a pretty simple card packed with a lot of feminine charm.  I originally designed this card to be for Mother's Day, but for those in my class that do not have a need for that sentiment, I made it easy to switch out the sentiment to "Happy Birthday".  Both cards are identical with the exception of the sentiment...

So simple, yet so pretty.  I just chose a fun pink paper from the "Brushed" paper pack and a strip of paper from the "Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment".  I just love that houndstooth pattern.  I did the stamping on a circular piece, layered a scalloped circle for a boarder and popped it up with some foam adhesive.

The stamp set we used is not in the Annual Inspirations catalog, it was in the Seasonal Expressions supplement which expired at the end of March.  HOWEVER, the stamp set IS STILL AVAILABLE!!  The stamp set is called "Happy to Be Friends".  I just love it.  It has so many sentiment variations and those cute little flowers which can be done in colors to match any paper pack.

Here's what you get in this stamp set...

Here is a close up of the stamping on one of the cards...

I ended up with a total of 16 "Bitty Sparkles" on my stamped images.  So pretty!  In case you're wondering, the CTMH Exclusive Ink colors I used were: Cranberry, Pixie, Juniper and Canary.  
I've tried to link to most of the items used on my cards to my Close to My Heart website.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you for visiting and come again.
