A pocket full of Posies

It is the first of the month and this time also the first of the year. I wish you all a happy and successful New Year and especially a healthy one.

It is also time for a new challenge over at the Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog and this month our sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle and the winner will get a $15 store voucher.

I am using the digital stamp called Pocket full of Posies. I printed the image on Stathmore Colored Pencil paper (400 series) and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils. 

I added gold foil to the stems of the flowers with a glue pen and Deco Foil. I cut the image out with a tag die from my stash and adhered it to a card panel that I had embossed with a Darice  heart embossing folder. I added a yellow flatback pearl over the tag hole.

I also added a strip of gold foil along the bottom of the card with 1/8 inch double sided tape. I cut the sentiment out 3 times from white cardstock, adding double sided adhesive to the one cut, which then allowed me to foil the whole sentiment after removing the release paper. I stacked the 3 die cuts on top of each other to give it some dimension.

I was so happy with this simple card and am amazed how much pop a little bit of foil gives.
