Stamping for fun today!

I hope you are all having a terrific weekend! Life has been incredibly busy for us the past month or so and I haven't had much time for anything. It was also a busy month for design team work, so in the little bit of stamping time I've had I've been doing all design team work. I haven't had a chance to just sit down and stamp for fun in ages. Last night I decided I was desperately in NEED of some mental health time so I managed to sneak to the basement for a little bit of stamping.
I decided that instead of doing design team work I would just find a fun challenge and stamp for fun. I found 2 challenges that worked great together: the Limelight Sketch #46 Sparkle challenge and the Copic Creations challenge #27 Coloring on other surfaces.

Here is the Limelight sketch (the twist is you need to add sparkle):

For my card I used a stamp set from Unity Stamps called Insightful Meadow. For my sparkle I added some Basic Grey self adhesive red rhinestones. I also used some super cool Love My Tapes Japanese Masking Tape. Be sure to check out the Love My Tapes blog tomorrow as I am the featured product tester this week! As for my Copic Creations coloring on other surfaces challenge...I used a blue Copic marker and colored my white Karen Foster Scrappers Floss for the button in the center of my flower. I absolutely love using the white floss in buttons because I can customize it to any color using my Copics!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! Be sure to check back tomorrow for the Little Paper Shop Monday challenge!

Wow Heather, this card is stunning!! So many fabulous details and wonderful color!!!!! Love your flower! You've convinced me to get the floss as I only use linen thread and get frustrated when it unravels and doesn't go thru the button holes easily. It is fun to stamp for fun!!!!
