Guest Designing for Tic Tac Toe Challenge 173

I'm honored to be Guest Designing for TTTC #173.  Here's the fun board with lots of great options.
My card uses the top horizontal line of Stencil, Frame It, Sparkle.  I recently got a few bottles of WOW Embossing powder & boy do they sparkle!  To start, I inked an unlabeled stencil with Versamark & then randomly added 3 different powders, one at a time, & used my heat gun.  The colors are BEE True, Persian Indigo & Vintage Peacock.  I wanted to see what would happen if I added transluscent Spring Breeze powder over the top.  It definitely muted the colors, but was still really pretty & sparkly.  I decided the best thing to do was to use the panel for diecutting.  The stencil design made me think of balloons, so I used an old Winnie & Walter die.  The little bow in the set was heat embossed in Persian Indigo.  
I die cut a PTI Pierced Feature Frame Rectangle from white cardstock twice to give it a bit of dimension.  Then I figured out where to place the balloon on the Soft Stone panel so that it would be in the corner of the frame.  The sentiment from a very old INKADINKADO set was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist. 
The sparkle & shine as you tilt the card in the light is really beautiful!  Even the little bow sparkles.  Hope I've inspired you to pick a line and play along.  I'm entering SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

I thought I posted a comment, then I made another test one and clearly the first didn't save...so I deleted the tester.


I love the sparkle on the card, especially the bow. Congrats on GD spot.
