Glitterbees Challenge

Hello and Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend and got to share some great time with their Valentine!

I have the honor to be hostess for the Glitterbess challenge this time around! The card today is my interpretation of our next challenge! The challenge is to make a shaped card! However, the shape can be anything but a square or rectangle!! That means it can be a circle, a diamond, an apple, a car....wherever your mind and inspiration lead you! There are some great shape cards on Mel Stampz under Templates, on Google search, as well as YouTube.

My card uses the Martha Stewart resized flower templates from Mel's blog. There are five different size flowers and I layered them all. I started with the largest and cut it on the fold to form the card base in white card stock. The other layers are cut from wallpaper. The green layers are edged with a gel pen. The floral layers are edged with Stickles. The card layer is edged on top with sea green bead trim. The back of the card is edged with lace trim. I also cut another large flower to use on back to cover the lace edge. Gluing the trims was a bit tricky and took some drying time, but the results were worth it! All the layers are attached with glue dots. The final touch is an antique button added to the center of the card.

This card was made for a lady very dear to me! Just being near her makes my heart sing! She makes my world a much better place to be! And, although her birthday isn't until March, I wanted to share her card with you now. Don't worry! Mom doesn't do computers or visit blogs!! LOL!!

I hope you enjoyed what you have seen here today and you will join us in this challenge! You can visit our challenge blog and link your card. We would love to see what you have created! You have until the end of February to post your card for this challenge. We have new challenges the first and the fifteenth of each month! You don't have to be a Glitterbee to participate so come on over and join us!

Thank you so much for your visit today! It is always so special when you drop by! We'll keep the light on for ya! (But don't look for the motel sign...look for the creeks and cats!!)

Blessings to you,
Vicki
