A Floral Thank You

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and the theme is Add Some Sparkle.

I have used a gorgeous image and papers from the Crafter's Companion A Country Life CD.


I printed two images so that I could decoupage the flower, I then added lots of sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen, which of course doesn't show up on the photograph.


The sentiment is from Hero Arts stamped onto a tag from the CD, the ribbon and gems are from my stash.


You can just about see the sparkle in this photograph.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:



offering 3 digi images to the winner
