I feel like there was a lot of buildup for a card that’s not really all that exciting. I mean, I like it enough to AW it on the blog, obviously; but sorry for the extra-AWy preview post for an everyday regular card. I just really had nothing to write about yesterday.
This card is sparkle city. Glitter button, shimmery ribbon and thread, metallic shamrock. I used Spica pens all over the colored image and on the sentiment, and I also sprayed the felt flowers with Perfect Pearls Mist. I like the way all the shine contrasts with the muted colors in the paper.
This one has a long recipe:
Paper: from my stash (unknown)
Image: Horseshoe from The Stamping Boutique
Embellishments: Felt flowers and Glitter button from artsy.licious; shamrock confetti from my stash; upcycled ribbon (I think it came from a box of chocolates); thread from DMC.
