Twinkling Tuesday and Spanish Sparkle....

ETA: I was asked if I could have used a glue pad to put the glitter on and might have been easier and less messier.....WHAT is the matter with me??!!!

It's Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch challenge time and this week our sketch comes from Jack Diedrich, who is Jessica's son and Jack gave us this fun-luvin' sketch!!

and this is how I interpreted the sketch ...

I started by using my Spanish Script Backgrounder and stamping it in Memento black Ink onto Vintage Cream cardstock. Then I stamped the flower from Cornish Heritage Farms Silhouette Blooms II, with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. When it was still nice and hot, I dumped my Martha Stewart glitter on top, and then it stuck to the versamark!

I cut it out with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles and then edged it with my gold paint pen. I popped it up onto another sheet with the Spanish Script backgrounder stamped on it and tied the edges with gold ribbon from Papertrey Ink!

Very easy and I should not have been sweating over this card at all! "Should not" being the operative words! I always sweat over a card even if it looks ridiculously easy or not!! Just my nature I guess...

Please take a moment to check out the other girl's blogs, on my side bar, to see what wonderful things they have done with Jack's sketch!! They are sure to be amazing to say the least!!

You are most certainly welcome to play with us, and if you do, please use the keyword MTTSC19 for this week's sketch challenge.
