Sparkle and Shine Challenge Sponsored by Right at Home

The challenge over at Sparkle and Shine is sponsored by Right at Home, and has us using this inspiration photo.  I immediately thought of my Mom, purple being her favorite color and Mother's Day just around the corner.  So, I used a large circle to highlight some lavender flowers.

This is what I came up with:
Here are the supplies used:
Neenah Solar White Cardstock  (80 lb)
SSS Stitched Rectangles and Circles dies
Altenew Vintage Flowers stamp set
Basic Grey Granola All Natural/Division B2 stamp set (leaves)
Technique Tuesday Today Flower stamp set (sentiment)
SSS Thistle and Wisteria dye inks
MFT Lavender Fields dye inks
PPP Sparkling Clear Mix sequins
Zots Bling Glue Dots (to adhere the sequins)
Fun Foam 

Thanks so much for visiting!

Sparkle & Shine Challenge #27

The Sparkle & Shine Challenge 27 is sponsored by Create a Smile stamps, and our inspiration photo is the following:
I just love all the bright polka dots on this umbrella!  My take on it is:

The umbrella for this shaker card was cut out using a Silhouette file, and I colored the outlined image with copics before inserting back into the cut out area.  The main shaker part is popped up over a strip of patterned paper from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic 6x6 paper pad.  Sequins and clear droplets are from Pretty Pink Posh, and the sentiment is from Create a Smile's Bad Day stamp set.

This was so much fun to make, and I really like the way it turned out!  Thanks for taking a look!
