Happy Mother's Day

Throughout the month, the Designers from Sparkle N Sprinkle have been pairing Want 2 Scrap chipboard with various products sold at SNS.

For my card today, I started out with the Want 2 Scrap Nestaboard Lacey Ovals and created the background by heat embossing it with Gold Coast embossing powder.  The silhouette is a Dreamweavers stencil that I laid on top and then pressed VersaMark embossing ink through the openings.  After carefully removing the stencil, I covered the embossing ink with Amethyst Spray embossing powder and heat set it.

Once this had cooled, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops (Buttermilk) around the perimeter of oval.  I let these dots set up for a few minutes as I only wanted some of the Crystal Drops to be covered with glitter, then I sprinkled Hyacinth glitter over the semi-wet drops.  This allowed some of the Crystal Drops to be covered with glitter and some of them to remain the original color.

The green oval frame is part of a die from Cheery Lynn Designs (Emperor Swan).  The white die cuts are from Sue Wilson Designs (Noble die collection: Ornate Pierced Rectangles) and the sentiment is two Sweet Wordlet dies from Die-Versions (Happy, Mother's Day).  I added some Amethyst Spray embossing powder to a scrap of cardstock, heat set it, and then cut out my words.

For a finishing touch, I combined a couple different Mon Ami Gabby (White/Gold 7/8"; Carmel/Gold 7/8") pull ribbons together to create a ribbon flower.
