A little carried away..... & mojo24

I may have gotten a little carried away with the new chunky sprinkles from SUs occasions mini available March 1. I wanted to use my new set, big on spring but after making the card, I couldn't just leave my new glitter on the shelf again. So I pulled out a chipboard flower and went to town. Then I realized the flower was a bit larger than I wanted it to be. But boy is it sparkly!! I love the new mini sets because they are die cut, I was stampin in no time!!
Tip alert for thte chunky glitter: I think next time I use it I will cover the chipboard in craft ink so if any gliter falls off it will not be as noticeable.

I like it though and it worked out well since I needed to hold my little one half the time I was stamping .

Stamps: Big on spring Ink and card stock: basic gray, bashful blue, celery, whisper white Accessories: Bashful blue prints dsp, white gel pen, chunky sprinkls, chipboard flower, blue gingham ribbon, 1 3/8 circle punch, scallop punch, round tab punch and clear rhinestone brad. Techniques: paper piecing, criss cross card

Well I finally did a sketch challenge!!! Here's a link to the sketch.

It's hard to tell in the post because my layout softens the pictures but there are 2 flatback pearls on the moss taffetta ribbon. I also used my brand new cuttlebug on the pale plum layer. Boy is that fun and easy!! I embossed the flowers from loads of love in iridecent ice on the perfect plum layer.

Thanks for looking!
