A Win & A Card



A friend of mine is going through a tough time at present and I was thinking of her when I created this card as she is being amazingly strong.

First, I stamped the background on to a pink card base, then I sprinkled on WOW 'Sugar Plum' embossing powder - which was amongst a great stash of products that was a blog candy win from my blogging buddy Veerle.  Her blog can be found HERE.

I heat set the EP and it was full of glittery goodness . . . so pretty!

Next, I stamped the focal piece and adhered it to a piece of vellum that was slightly larger than my focal piece and adhered it to the card front.

I finished off with some Nuvo pearl drops and this is the finished card.
