Grateful Flower Box

Wahoo for Wednesday bloggie friends! I completely forgot to share some exciting news. I was asked to write a bi-weekly feature over at the All that Stickles blog. You may have noticed my LOVE of the product and how I tend to use just about every color on my creations. My DT leaders are in love with the technique so we've created Pile Up Wednesdays.

Click over to the All that Stickles blog to see the full details of this card. You might get inspired and hopefully will pick up a few tips and tricks along the way. Today is my second post in the series.

Thanks for looking! Spicey Cat Chick =^..^=
My Creation
We have a Nature/Outdoors Linky Party going on at ATS so I created a card that would be welcome at the party. You have until Friday to join in the fun.

Image Detail
I added Stickles and Glossy Accents to the image for lots of texture and dimension.
I added free squeezed a squiggle of Glossy Accents over the preprinted verse. I'm in LOVE with the way the squiggle turned out.

Inspiration
Monday Lunchtime Sketch #277 I used the basic sketch elements but made my card landscape.
Alphabet Challenge ~ N for Newest Stampor Decoupage This is the newest digi in my collection and I was THRILLED to play with it right away.
Stampin for the Weekend Challenge ~Butterflies The butterfly was originally flitting by the flowers but I fussy cut it out and added it to the sentiment.
365 Cards Day 149 ~ Word Wednesday: Shining Do you see the shine in my window? Between that and the glitter you might need shades!
365 Cards Day 236 ~ Rainbowish (colors without actual image) I was inspired by rainbow stripes and LOTS of color. Granted I went with the paler end of the colors, but they are all there.
