Brighten My Day

Can you see that summer is on my mind - warm sunshine, pretty flowers and shimmering blue sea. This card is inspired from all of that. Sparkle N Sprinkle latest stamp reveal is giving you lots of beautiful images to make a summer card.
Background paper is from Digital Rainbow of Pastels Patterned Paper Pack. It won't show very well on the photos but edges of the paper are inked with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Peony Pink) to add even more shimmer.

For the focal image I used pre-colored picture from Flower Girl - Magic in You Digi set. It's die cut with stitched circle die. Edges are slightly inked with Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. I added Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops to the girl accessories and Sherbert Shimmer to the flower center. Sentiment is also from the same Digi set.

Matting layer underneath the image is made from two die cut shapes (Spellbinders Decorative Labels One). Before adhering them together, I covered them with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Ocean Glitter. Two square shapes made a pretty doily. 

For the flowers I used Spellbinders dies (Blooms Four). They are inked with Carved Pumpkin and Fossilized Amber Distress inks. After shaping them I added Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center. Leafy swirls are also cut with Spellbinders die (Sprigs). They are colored with Nuance watercolor powder (Jade).

Little dots of Nuvo Jewel Drops (Orange Marmalade) was added to the card. Matting layer of the background paper are covered with Large Nuvo Glue Pen and Ocean Glitter.
