Hi!  Thanks to everyone who played in Sparkle N Sprinkle's recent "Beautiful Geraniums" Mystery Party. We enjoyed making the new projects, and hope you enjoyed browsing. 

April Williams was our Mystery Designer for the contest. With 22 comments left on April's blog, Mr. was used to generate our Commenting Winner - . Jean Bullock!

Here is another card that I made, while playing with this beautiful new set 519: Geraniums:

I used the same floral frame that I had used in my first card (scroll down to last post to see). I used the two-step stamping technique, stamping the silhouette geranium on watercolor paper with the stamp colored with crayon and misted with water. Then went over the top of the image with the detail stamp. I love the soft look it gives.

I took some of the 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and stuck it down to white cardstock. I then cut out some little flowers  and a base for my sentiment and after removing the protective backing, covered them with Bubblegum Glitter.  I fussy cut one of the flowers from the stamped image to go along with my other two little flowers.

The background is the silhouette geranium stamped randomly over white cardstock and then heat embossed with Clear Detail Powder. I ran Memento Angel Pink ink over the top to achieve the resist technique.  

Full instructions for making this card can by found here:

Hope you've enjoyed your little visit with me today!

See you again soon, off to continue with some Christmas cards now!
