Sparkle and Shine Challenge!

Hello folks,

Today I have a card share for the very first Sparkle and Shine Challenge. I am playing along as Pretty Pink Posh design team. Pretty Pink Posh is the sponsor for this challenge. Pretty Pink Posh is perfect considering what the challenge is called :)

Here is the first challenge

And this is my take on the challenge.

Happy St Partick's Day

I did not have a clover stamp set or die. So I decided to improvise and use heart punch to make my clovers. On my card I stamped the large flourishes from Papertrey Ink with green ink. Then spattered some green colour shine all over the panel and left it to dry. Then I sponged some Crushed Olive distress ink on a scrap piece of cardstock then punched out some hearts. Then sponged some Mowed Lawn distress ink on the heart and left them to dry. 

I then trimmed the dried stamped panel, added a strip of green glitter on one side. Then I glued the punched hearts in threes to form clovers and added Sparkly Clear 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh at the centre. I also glued 4mm Mossy green sequins randomly all over the panel. The panel is mounted on the card front. I felt the card needed some dew drops. An easy way to add dew drops is glossy accent. That is what I have done. Sentiment is from Hero Arts.
