As we talked about last week, the Emboss resist cardstock sheets included with the Close to My Heart Dream Pop promotion are just Crazy Obnoxiously Bright! Really, they just Sparkle!
I really wanted to bring out the Shine in the kit so I went through my drawers and grabbed a few of my favorite Glitter embellishments.
As seen here in the photo, by using a black cardstock base the bright colors seem even more Electric! They almost seem to "Pop" right off the page! I wanted to add something to really Jazz it up so I grabbed for my most loved Close to My Heart embellishment of all time, the Bling Assortment.
One of my other favorites that I seem to grab with almost every project is the Silver Shimmer Trim! Did you know it's even adhesive backed? BIG SMILE! It also comes in black and I'd be lying if I said I was not crossing my fingers for even more colors of Shimmer trim with the debut of the 2013 Autumn/Winter Idea book this July!
My favorite element of the layout has got to be the ruffled ribbon! The Slate Satin Polka-Dot Ribbon is just perfect for ruffling! While it might look a bit complicated I can assure you it's easy as can be! If you'd be so kind, join me back here tomorrow for a short photo tutorial on how I created the ribbon ruffle!
This Sparkly kit will also be in my Ebay shop very soon. I'll be happy to announce when it's made its way into the online inventory!
Until tomorrow, Thank you for visiting! It just makes my day!
