A Card for any Occasion!

Hello Everyone!
WOW!  Are you having trouble getting your mojo going like I am?
Today I decided to create a card using a couple of challenges as my starting point to help get the creative juices flowing.
First the sketch I have used is for the latest challenge at Mojo Monday ...

and I decided to get adventurous and use glitter!
Yes I said GLITTER ... something I rarely do because somehow I end up with it EVERYWHERE!~!  LOL
So of course the current challenge at Sprinkle n Sparkle (loose glitter, embossing powder and/or flocking) gave me the shove I needed!

Here's my creation:


The stamp set I've used to create my background panel as well as my focus panel is a set from Sparkle n Sprinkle called Poppies.  For the background panel I simply stamped my image using Versafine Onyx on a white card stock panel that is 1/4" smaller than my card base.


For my focus image, I used the same stamp but stamped it onto white card stock using Versamark.  Then sprinkled PK Glitz 'china red' embossing glitter and heat set.  I used a green alcohol marker to add a touch of color to the leaves.
 
 After double matting my focus image using Tutti Designs 'stitched circles', I decided I needed a little more sparkle and added a red glitter border around my second background panel using a Nuvo glue pen and red glitter.  I purchased the entire set of glue pens at the Sparkle n Sprinkle booth at last years Adventures in Stamping convention here in Akron.  LOVE THOSE THINGS!!!
A little faux stitching and white gelly roll dots were my finishing touches.

So there ya go ... that wasn't so bad!
I just needed a little help getting started!

I hope you'll come back tomorrow when I'll be telling you all about the
