Papertrey Ink and WPlus 9 Thank you card

Hello everyone, and welcome to another challenge over at Simply Create Too

Simply Create Too Challenge Blog

and this time we want to see lots of sparkle. For this challenge you can release your inner bling lover and really go to town with some of the glitter and other sparkly materials lying unloved in your stash. I thought that if I was going all blingy, I should make a fancy card, so I pulled out the Papertrey Ink Coverplate: Scroll Frame and cut it from white and pink card.

I took the central oval and embossed the thank you stamp from WPlus 9 Hand Lettered Thanks with white embossing powder, and then stamped the foliage and tiny flower from the PTI You've Been Framed Oval stamp set

To add the sparkle, I sprayed the whole frame with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle with the Iridescent finish, and added a few tiny pink glitter dots before I mounted the frame onto the base card. The outer frame was raised on foam tape to add a bit of dimension. I find it so hard to capture sparkle in a photograph but is does look very sparkly in real life!

If you would like some more inspiration, why not hop over to the Simply Create Too blog and see what the team has to show you. You have until 5th August to join in with us and we love to see your entries.
