Happy Day in Gold Glitter

The recipient of this birthday card likes lots of glimmer! I know she'll enjoy receiving this card. Inspiration came from two sources - a sketch challenge from Atlantic Hearts #318 and a Tic-Tac-Toe color challenge from Color My Heart Color Dare #345. I selected the middle row, using Canary, Gold, Mint or equivalent.

Onto a white cardstock base, two die cut rectangles were adhered. A plain rectangle using patterned paper was backed with a piece of mint cardstock. This was adhered using foam tape for dimension. The gold glimmer strip was added in keeping with the sketch. The flower, die cut and backed with vellum, was adhered using clear foam. Two butterflies were punched from the gold glimmer cardstock and a sentiment was stamped using gold ink, fussy cut then adhered. The inside was decorated with a leaf of mint green vellum and another punched butterfly. Adding a few clear droplets finished the card.

Color Dare #345 is biweekly and runs from Friday, May 31, 2019 through Thursday, June 13. AHSC #318 is weekly, beginning Monday, May 27, 2019 through Sunday, June 2. Visit the challenge blogs and play along!
