Playing in Paradise #104

Happy Friday everybody, this week seemed to have zoomed on by.
It is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge. Linda is our hostess this week and she is having us add some sparkle to our creations.
I felt pretty brave when I started this card, glitter and I are not always on the same path. I wanted it to go in one specific location and it wants to go everywhere, on the floor, floating in the air, maybe a side trip to the kitchen.
In the end I was able to get enough of the sparkly little bits onto my project. I affixed peel-off flowers to a piece of glue tape then added the glitter. I then fussy cut the flowers out, I wanted the vibrant colours to pop again the black background.
My camera was a little confused by all the sparkle and could not pick up the beautiful glitter colours very well.
Stop by the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog and see the fabulous projects from the Playing in Paradise design team members.  Join in the fun and you could win some fabulous craft prizes.

  3. Lovely work...great idea with the glue tape and flowers!

  4. The cards are very creative and pretty.

  5. Those peel-offs have always intrigued me. You have inspired me to give them a try, they look so pretty on your card. I always get glitter everywhere too lol, but I love the looks of it.

  6. I definitely relate to your glitter non-cooperation. In my case it seems that glitter loves the poor dog best :)
    I love how you've framed these flowers with black & white - it makes the glitter pop even more :)

  7. I wish I could see this up close - it is fabulous as is! I manage to get 'glitterfied' pretty well too. I'm positive I eat some unknowingly.

    Great Card Sis!

  8. This is beautiful!! You certainly conquered the glitter this time!!
