Ahem.... Anna are you there?

I glittered! LOL

I am so NOT the glitter queen and I have a stamp to prove that also but my friend Anna she is the definitely the Queen! Anyway I used my Palette Glue pad and some fairy dust to do the swirl on this card. I followed the Stampers Quest April sketch for this card - I really think it is a neat one where we can get those flourish stamps out to feature them a bit!

I am not sure who makes the floral image I received it in an image swap and it wasn't marked but I colored it with my Copics and then edged it with French Lilac Palette Ink. I mounted it onto a copy paper scallop I had cut for a template for something else (yep using my scraps up again!) I also pierced the edges of it. The patterned paper is from DCWV Pocket Full of Posies which I like cause it is already glittered - no mess for me!

This is what I ended up with. I really like the bright yellow with the purple. Not a combo I would normally go for but it works here. The brads are from the Making Memories primary colors. Inside since the card base was so dark and also to cover up the ribbon ends and brad backs I lined it with white that also was edged in French Lilac. I added a yellow swirl and a Friendship sentiment well since this is for a friendship card mingle!

Hope whomever I get for a partner likes it!
