Fresh Ideas Friday!!

You might remember this card I made based on Eryn's fabulous challenge to use turquoise, yellow..plus one color!!  Well, I went straight to my Cosmo Cricket "DeLovely" designer papers, and thought...hmm..I want to try something different with a plain Prima flower!

I love color, and this challenged sparked my curiousity to try this FRESH IDEA that I had heard or read about somewhere in my hours of surfing the net!! As I looked at the beautiful yellow paper, I thought, how about accenting my flower (glimmer mist with Sunflower spray) with something white to coordinate with the paper! Yep, sometimes I get into those types of  little details and it sparks an idea to try. So, here it is, and it's really easy-peasy too!!


All you need to do is spray your plain flower with a Glimmer Mist, and while it is still wet...sprinkle fine white glitter using glue! The glue and glitter I used were one of those Martha Stewart sample packs from Michael's that I purchased during the holidays. Let the flower dry over night, and in the morning you will wake up to that glitter clumping up a bit onto the flower!! I just love this look and I thought it would go perfectly with my papers!!

That's it for today!  Enjoy your weekend!!
