Dream BIG

This will stay on top until May 1st- check out my sweet deal!

Hi everyone! This week is speeding by isn't it? Last night I finished making up this card.

(click to enlarge)

I used the squigglefly image Me And the Flowers and colored it with copic markers. I chalked a sky background and then added a big dollop of crystal lacquer in the center of the flowers and poured on some of that chunky black glitter. I was going to put some brown sand on it but I couldn't find my colored sand. In the end I like the black chunky glitter better anyway; it looks like these flowers are loaded with sunflower seeds! LOL!
Here's a close up of the chunky glitter

Doesn't it kind of look like sunflower seeds?

I used a scalloped rectangle nestabilities die and cut just the front leaving the folded edge un cut. I tied a sheer orange ribbon around the top scallop. I wanted bright yellow, but the only yellow ribbon I have has white dots on it and I didn't want that. The designer paper I used to mat the image on the front is also used inside the card so that the scallops show up better when the card is closed. Here's another view of the card partially opened.

The words were printed on my computer with a font called Batik Regular on a lightweight linen paper so you can kind of see the image through the paper.
I think it turned out cute! What do you think?
