Cheery Lynn You are Fabulous

Hi Crafty Friends!  I'm back today with a card inspired by Cheery Lynn Designs Sparkle & Shine Challenge.  I bought some new design paper recently and I wanted to make something with muted shades. When I put the pieces together I didn't feel there was enough contrast so I changed the colors by adding in the blue-greens and the card came together.

The card base is a 5.5" blue-green.  The gray patterned paper on top was cut with the Horizon Boutique Stacker Square. I used this die on my card last Thursday too.  It's my go-to large square die as it always adds a bit of interest and elegance.

I cut two Horizon Fishtail Banners and glued them so only the tails would show.  I wanted to give the illusion of one long banner.  I then adhered the Fleur De Lis Doily Circle cut out of gold glitter paper.   It's popped up with foam adhesive for dimension.  A blue striped paper cut with the Pierced Stacker #3 was layered on top and then I added the Royal Scandinavian Tag #1 stamped with the sentiment to the very top. I added clear glitter glue to the sides of the tag.  Last I cut gold corners using the extra corner included with the Royal Scandinavian Tag #1 and used one of the extra negative fleur de lis on the "fabulous" tag.  I hope you can see all the sparkle and shine in the photos.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join this week's Sparkle & Shine Challenge for a chance to win $20 towards shopping at Cheery Lynn Designs.  I always love to see the beautiful challenge entries.
