More Sparkle

Things will be quiet on my blog for the next couple of weeks. I am leaving town tomorrow after school to go score part of our state's writing assessment for fourth grade, then I still have two days of school to finish up with the kiddos. I will be quite busy getting everything wrapped up, which means no time to stamp! I don't even think I'll have Internet access when I'm gone, so I'll have to come back and catch up with all you stamping bloggers out there! What will I do without my daily fix?????

On to the card...I made this for one of Lauren's Saturday Sketches. It's a funky pop-up, pull-out type of card. I really like this card I made with all the sparkles, so I continued that theme here. This time instead of using dazzling diamonds, I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder. It was time consuming because I had to stamp over each flower with Versamark, but the technique itself was very simple. I also tried to use bright colors that I don't normally use!

This is a view of the card standing up:
Here's a side view where you can see the folded flap and the pop-up flower:
This is the card laying flat, so you can see what it would look like if someone pulled the flap down:
And here's a close-up to see all the SPARKLE!!!
