February challenge at Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hi everyone! If you are looking for my Flutterby Wednesday post it is just beneath this one.

Today marks the beginning of the February challenge for Sparkle N Sprinkle and there is another sketch to follow. I really had to work a bit on this one but am pretty pleased with the results.

I don't know if you can see in the photo but the embossing powder I used is a combination of purple and green and really mixes well with the colors in the card. I made some little flowers from some punches and added pearl centers to them. All in all a bit of an elegant card for me, something that I don't do that often but always nice to step out of our comfort zone. Ok, make sure you enter for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice, you have until the end of the month. And don't forget about our Spring Blog hop, it is next week, Yikes! All instructions and supplies for this card can be found in the gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
