Sparkle Paper Ginormous Flowers

The background on this card I used Sparkle Paper – an adhesive backed cardstock with hologram front.  It comes in a silverish color, but I learned how to transform it with a June/July 2008 Technique Junkies Newsletter technique called Sparkle Paper!  The camera cannot capture the brilliance of this background paper!  It is truly gorgeous in person.

Since the background is so dominant on this card, I choose to just do a simple focal point.  I stamped the Ginormous Flower twice with Summer Sun on Whisper White and cut them out.  I folded the petals backwards to give them some dimension.  The center I placed a HUGE rhinestone brad that I’ve had in my stash!  I used Pomegranate Double Stitched ribbon and matted the Sparkle Paper on Basic Black with a Purely Pomegranate base card.

I’m off to Convention in the morning.  I am busily working on getting some posts timed to show during the week I’m gone.  So, check back to see my Swap Cards and 3D items I’m taking with me!  I can hardly wait to get that new catalog in my hands!  Woohoo!  It’s here…only one more sleep until I go!
