Happy Birthday with Sparkle!


cfc99



I know a lot of you craft in the evenings so you can probably relate to this.  I do have a true color light, which helps, but this morning when I looked at the card I made last night I saw that the yellow was not "lightening yellow" at all.  Funny thing is, if I'd looked behind me at the stack of papers not put away, I'd have seen a sheet of the color I needed.  That'll teach me for putting off cleaning up my space--not that it won't happen again--LOL!  Anyway, this morning my cold is much better & since it's my day off I re-made the card which I'm entering into the challenges for PDCC & Cas-ual Fridays.  It just so happens that CFS is sponsoring the PDCC this week.  I love the CFS Casual Elegance set I recently picked out as my random drawing prize & knew I wanted to use it for both challenges for a chance to get some more stamp sets.  My supplies are: Lifetime Crafts circle dies, Memento Rose Bud & Gray Flannel, COPIC Y02, Mark Richards crystal stickers.  The glitter is a large bottle labeled "sample" that cost me a whole 75 cents years ago at a stamp convention.  I used a Quickie Glue Pen to apply the glitter.  It works perfectly every time--never clogs--definitely worth keeping on hand.  Thanks so much for choosing to spend some of your time checking my blog--I appreciate every one of you.  Have a great week.

Love the circular design! Glad you are doing better.

Lisa said...

Ooooh yes the wrong color ordeal, I've done that on more than one occasion! But it's still a PRETTY card! A fun shape and I like the sparkle!

Anita Rex said...

No no not me! Never happened...not! Too often! My biggest mistake at night is ailing things and Tampa straight! So many times in the morning I look with horror at my cards nod think that didn't look like that last night!

Barb said...

Love this darling card, Greta! That happens to me too - usually with green shades for some reason. They look perfectly fine until I load the photo onto the computer and then gasp! So glad you're feeling better! :)

Love the round card with the spray of pretty flowers!

Barb Murphy said...

Beautiful flowers radiating from the center, the round card base...the blingy sentiment...I love it all!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, yes, dang, does that ever happen to me! I also glue things on perfectly straight at night and in the morning they have gone all wonky! The thing is, the computer / photo coloring is so often inaccurate that I don't fuss about that so much any more, but the wonkiness, what's up with that?! A beautiful and unique card, Greta!!

Darnell always makes me smile - and I totally second what she said! Colours often go funny once they're in a photo. I love my Quickie Glue pen too - and my Gray Flannel inkpad. I am using that for EVERYTHING right now. Such a cool card!

Dawn Turley said...

Awesome Greta. Your sparkle card is fabulous.

I love the way your card turned out, Greta - such a pretty design. The glue pen is, indeed, a must have for applying loose glitter.

Emily Keaton said...

Greta, your sweet circle card is so cheery and delightful! I am so jealous of your good success with the Quickie pen. I really must figure out how to master that! Your Twitter application is completely flawless :-)

Lovely design with the round shape Greta, glitter is always so hard to adhere, seems like you are a pro at it:-)!!!
