Sparkle & Shine Challenge #1

Hey everybody! It's time for the very first Sparkle & Shine Challenge!! We are so excited and hope you'll play! The first challenge is a photo inspiration challenge. Here comes the image:


I have a thing for these lovelies. I don't know why, but I have this ability to find four-leaved clovers without looking for them. I walk through our garden, something catches my eye, I stop in my tracks, bend down and pick the four-leaved clover. It drives my family crazy. They always try to find one without success. Not that this ability would help for anything, but it is fun. But you are not here to read about my oddities! Here is the card I created for the challenge:


I started my card with die-cutting the large stitched rectangle from the Winnie & Walter Essentials: Katharine Cutaways from green cardstock. Then I adhered it to the card. Now I die-cut the smaller stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I masked a hill on the right bottom corner with masking tape and applied Mowed Lawn Distress Ink with an ink blending tool. I stamped my sentiment (it says: good luck) and adhered the panel to the card. Then I stamped and colored the little girl, die-cut her and adhered her with foam tape. Using heart-shaped balloon dies from Simon Says Stamp, I created the four-leaved clover. After I had adhered it to the card, I drew a string with a black marker. To finish the card off, I adhered the light green Pretty Pink Posh sequins from the Winnie & Walter 1st Birthday Bash Mix.
Now it's time for you to play for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate from Pretty Pink Posh! Can't wait to see you take!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Auch wirklich klasse! Alles schön in grün - passt natürlich zum Feiertag in Amerika aber sieht auch so einfach toll aus.
