MIM 3 - Time for some sunshine

Hello there,

well the new Make it Monday challenge got me all fired up today and I just had to have a go especially after I thought I had a rather nifty idea for it ;) So what is the challenge - well to use a glitter strip (must be in a straight line). Want to know what my nifty idea is? - how about I show you :)

As you can see my glitter strip makes up the stem of my flower - it dawned (no that is not meant to be a pun BTW) on me that a straight glitter strip would be perfect for a flower stem and since I had a stash of coloured glitter - a green one!! I absolutely love the effect. It really does add some fun and sparkle to the card - and makes it feel bright and happy which is just what I wanted and hoped for! The card is pretty straight forward really so I won't go into the details check out my recipe below or leave a comment if you have a question.

  1. Very cute card! I really like the textures and colors. The inside is adorable too:)

  2. Very clever Kim. This is a really unique idea using the glitter strip for the stem. Loved your card, inside and out.

  3. What a fun couple of cards. I must say I love the scallops and the scallop reverse on the second card. Talk about perfect. This might also be a goodie for the PTI blog hop. *idea* I adore the simplicity and grace of one solid image and the other supportive elements just wonderfully backing up that flower with aplomb. Such pretty well made cards.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
