Happy Birthday, Sparkle!

Today is a very special date at Sparkle Creations! It's not only our 37th challenge, it is also our lovely "boss'" 29th birthday! Happy Birthday, Sparkle! Wishing you a wonderful birthday and many many more to come! Enjoy your special day with your friends and especially with your hubby! :)

This week's theme at Sparkle Creations, it is to create a card/project with NATURALS WITH A SPLASH OF COLOR.

What's the best, easiest, fastest way to color an image with naturals? Why, no coloring, of course! LOL It makes the image pop too!

For this card, I stamped Cafe Lucy with Memento Rich Cocoa to sort of match the color of the patterned paper. Patterned paper is by Colorbok. It's actually a wedding collection pack. Bet ya can't tell! hehe

I used Cafe Lucy this week because Sparkle loves coffee. This is exactly why I love Sparkle Creations stamps! There is an image for all occasions!

This card is rather shimmery. I sprayed pearl shimmer mist all over this card! Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink.



I followed the sketch over at Unscripted Sketch. Sparkle Creations is sponsoring them this week so you get double the chance of winning a Sparkle Creation stamps if you play along with our challenge and follow their sketch!

Okie dokie, gang. That's all I have for you today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

This looks great! I really like the effect of putting the picture there uncoloured, it reminds me of story books when I was a girl, and is somewhat nostalgic.
