This week's image from Faith so reminds me of Christmas.
As usual~there are always the red, white and variations of those colors along those lines every year. A few years back one of the local florists had a sale and had some white poinsettias 'sprayed' purple and added glitter to them as well. Being the purple lover that I am - I immediately fell for the beautiful plant. But now with a household of 3 VERY curious cats, I unfortunetely can no longer bring these home. So....when trying to inspire myself, I immediately went for the non-traditional purple w/some glitter.
I chalked my design w/purples, then sprayed some "shimmer' over the top. Layered the design and popped it up on the card. I then added a lil tag and some ribbon and TADA finshed. Although I do have to admit, I did take apart this card a few times as it just wasn't to my liking. But I have to say...I liked how it finally turned out.
