Did'ya ever make a card that you couldn't believe you actually made?  I am so pleased with this card and can't believe I did it! It didn't photograph well and I'm disappointed in that because you can't tell how well it came out. Enough bragging, lets get on with it. It is just cardstock  run through the big kick with an embossing folder then scribbled aqua and green gelatos on and wiped with a baby wipe. Then I cut two Memory Box Tilth Florals from aqua and green cardstock and glued them together with a sequin for the center. I cut three hellos from a W plus 9 die in aqua, green and black and glued them together then added black WOS so it sparkles. Mounted the panel on green cardstock. Not very inventive but I love how it came out. It just shimmers and sparkles. Be kind to one another.

  6. It is too bad that schparkly cards are so darn hard to photograph! Luckily, all of us know that and we make cards so it's easy for us to tell how sensational this beauty must look in person! Well done, Brenda! I'm not as surprised as you are that you made this! You are one very talented card artist!! Have a wonderful weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Well you SHOULD brag, and I CAN believe you did it. Loved reading the how-to, and it really turned out so beautifully. The gelato & wipeoff with the wipes, created some amazing soft colors on the lovely design. Inspired design. You should be justly proud of this, and the photo is pretty good too! Probably just as luscious as the card looks IRL. Mine are always like that!!! Happy wkend, TFS & Hugs.

  12. Wow, I am really loving this card too Brenda! The colors are so beautiful and one of my favorite combo's. I have never worked with gelatos before, but I love how they came out on your embossed background. I have a paisley background EF too, but have never used it I'm sad to say. That flower is amazing and I am so loving the sparkle on the "hello"! Yep, I love this one! Hugs, Brenda
