Be Still . . .

This was a rare thing . . . a spontaneous card! I was flipping through my folder of purple scraps and I just felt an urge to use the sparkly background paper. Then I found a sparkly flower that matched the pink perfectly, and the stamp already sitting on the table . . . and I had a card. I used an embossing pen for the sparkly embossing powder around the edge of the purple flower layer and it worked great! I had to do it in stages as I thought the fluid might dry too much if I did the whole flower at once. Add some ric rac and a border punch and I was done. Simple and easy, but it will be nice to have in the old card stash for whenever I might need it.
