Upsy Daisy on TESC79!

Seems like a strange title huh? Well, that's because I've been up since 3:40 a.m. today and it is now 10:30 p.m. - haven't slowed down yet. Don't ask, just pray I get some serious sleep soon!

I participated in Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge #79 this weekend - I'm sooo into PTI's Berry Sorbet right now - it's like an addiction. Guess as far as addictions go - that's not a bad one? HA!

In this first card you can really see the sparkle I added to the tips of all the flowers (you can click on any image to see a larger size...might help you see the sparkle!). I also added lots of dimensional pop dots to this particular card and pulled out some Crate Paper I had - the flowers in the Crate paper match perfectly to PTI's Sweet Blush & Berry Sorbet. Rather than using Sweet Blush, I strictly used the opposite side of the Crate DP.

I stamped the Upsy Daisy image from Stampin' Up in Berry Sorbet and then used a clear Spica glitter pen for the tips. I also sponged the edges of this card with PTI's Berry Sorbet before removing the Nestability Die. Love that look - inspired by Julee Tillman of Verve Visual. I did the same thing with the circular Nestability. This card includes paper piercing in each of the four corners.

The next card is IDENTICAL except for a few tiny things. :D

On this one you can see I did some paper piercing on the actual layer with the flowers as well as to the left of the Crate DP. I really enjoyed Taylor's sketch; hope you get the chance to play along!

Thanks for popping in; hope to see you again soon! Hugs, ~M.

Ok girlie...did you get some sleep? I sure hope so!

Your card it beautiful...in fact it was because of you that I bought that stamp set. You have done the neatest things with that set.

Hey, speaking of SU when are you ordering next? I think I may need some cardstock.
