CAS On Sunday - Glitter or Sequin Challenge With Unity Stamps

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to pop in with a quick card I made yesterday for a few blog challenges.  First is the CAS On Sunday Challenge Blog.  I was so happy to be one of their top picks last week for Challenge #106 and had to play along again for this week's Challenge #107, which is is to use glitter or sequins on a card.  

I'm also adding it to this week's challenge over on the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Blog, which is Challenge #97 - Mother's Day.

And this week's challenge on the Cards In Envy Challenge Blog, which is a Motherly Love Card Challenge. first thought when I saw the words glitter and sequins was to make a shaker card.  But I figured that would everyone's first thought and I decided to go in a different direction.  I decided to use glitter as an element in the image.

I started by making a top folding A2 card base out of white cardstock to which I adhered a piece of decorative cardstock. I cut another piece of white cardstock using the stitched rectangle from Bundle of Stitched Shapes (Simon Says Stamp). I stamped the flower image from Everything Joyful & Beautiful (Unity Stamp Co.) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored it in using Copic markers (Y08, FRY1, FRV1, RV11, and G05).  

Next step was to add some glitter.  I started with the top yellow/orange flower by applying dots of glue to the black dots around the flower with my Zig 2 Way fine tip glue.  I then poured some Sunflower colored glitter (Recollections) over the glue.  I waited a minute and then removed the excess. 

I then went and did the same to the pink flower using Bubblegum colored glitter (Recollections).

When it was dry, I adhered this to the card front.  I also adhered some pink sequins and the phrase "Happy Mother's Day".  Done!

I love that I was able to use both glitter and sequins for the blog challenge!  I hope you enjoyed this post and this CAS card.  Let me know by leaving a comment below.  Hope you guys have a great day and .... until next time -
