SSS: Make it Sparkle!

I was so happy to see that one of my blogging buddies Joy was last week's challenge winner at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!  This week's challenge is Make it Sparkle!  I'm sharing another card I made using the kit materials from a recent Stampin' Up workshop I attended:

Instead of making a pocket to hold a gift card, etc. per the workshop instructions I decided to make a birthday card instead.  I don't think I would have thought to put these two colors together (rich razzleberry and soft sky) but this combination is really growing on me!  The sentiment is from the new SU set called Age Awareness and the fun, dotty pp is from the Sweet Taffy collection. Some scored lines were made on the bottom strip of SU rich razzleberry cs using a Martha Stewart score board.  And I added some sparkle with the addition of the banner die cut from SU silver glimmer paper and the silver sequins.
Other Supplies Used:  SU rich razzleberry ink, SU soft sky pp and cs, Martha Stewart score board, sequins and bakers twine from stash

Have a fabulous weekend!

Gorgeous card, Robin! I love those colors together; the
razzleberry is so pretty!! And, I love the silver glimmer paper from SU.

It was very hard to believe that I actually won the SSS challenge this week - there were over 800 entries. So glad I submitted that last card to the mix. :)
