Something Stitched...

*This is my second post for the day, so if you are looking for my Wags 'n Whiskers post, please scroll down.*

Are you ready for another challenge with Stamp Something? This week we are being sponsored by Paper Jewels, and are challenging you to make... Something Stitched!

For my card, I decided to use the lovely Winterberry by Sweet Pea Stamps. She's supposed to be a winter stamp, as the name implies, but I wiped the ink off of the snowflakes before stamping her to make her appropriate for any season.

Winterberry was colored with copic markers, and then had plenty of sparkle added with some (ok, LOTS) of stardust Stickles. I added more stickles to the flowers, and then some copper colored Studio G glitter glue to the branches. My paper is from the Once Upon a Time stack by DCWV, and also has glitter on it, so this card sparkles like crazy in real life!

Copic markers used:

Challenges I participated in with this card:

Stamp Something - something stitched
Creative Card Crew - vintage / aged
Paperplay - shiny happy people
Practical Scrappers - markers
Stamptacular Sunday - sugar & spice & everything nice
