Just Us Girls #270 - Word Week **Sparkle**

Our word week at Just Us Girls this week is **Sparkle** brought to us by Sue.  I love sparkle!
 
This card really sparkles, but it difficult to see capture it on camera.  I stamped this image in blue pigment ink and embossed it with a powder called bridal embossing powder.  It's clear with some glitter in it.  Really sparkles!  I colored the bird with copic markers.  After looking for the "perfect" sentiment, I found this one.  Kind of goes with the bird possibly singing on that limb.  To add more sparkle, I pulled out some tinsel and created a bow.  That red piece was embossed with a woodgrain impression plate.


You can see more from the team and our guest designer on these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa, this is stunning! I love those birch trees against that sparkly sky background. The little red bird is the perfect pop of color and love that tinsel bow and perfect sentiment.

This is stunning! I have to agree with everything Sue already said. I love the birch trees against your sparkly sky, and that little cardinal is always a winner! Beautifully done!

Good that I stopped by; the woodgrain BG looks so great and here the folder is just catching dust... The labels are beautiful (have to try touring myself; I keep on sponging...) So you really inspired me Thanks!! Enjoy the sunday, Gerrina
