RAKs and The Pink Elepant Challenge #2

I entered this Mother's day card for The Pink Elepant Challenge Blog by Lori and Robin. This week challenge #2 is to use something of little sparkles. I added rhinestone in the middle of the flowers and I added stickels on the petals too. I added stickles on the butterflies, the scallop border and the sentiment. I'm not happy about the photo, so please click it to open a new window so you could see some sparkles. So happy that I used my edge punch from Martha Stewart and my swirls clear stamps from Autumn Leaves by Rhonna Farrer. And I have to give a credit for my dear hubby because he picked the papers from Basic Grey-Ambrosia/winsome and zest and the design. My hubby is a great designer too :) TY hubby :) I love how it turned out.
Products used:
Basic Grey/Ambrosia -papers
Autumn Leaves/Rhonna Farrer- swirls clear stamp
Ranger- stickles
Martha Stewart- edge punch
VersaFine- black ink
Best Occasion- cardstock
Scotch- foam adhesive

My very first time to win a Blog Candy :) My friend Giovana had her first year blog anniversarry last month. I'm so lucky that I won these goodies, I love them ALL but the most are the stamps yes more addition in my stamps collection :) More stamps to use, hopefully my stamping is getting better...

I didn't have any idea this gorgeous card is for me, when Linda posted on her blog. Thank you so much Linda, I'm so lucky to see this gorgeous card in real life. The image is fabulous and I LOVE it! I want you to go and visit her beautiful blog full of inspiration, yes all her cards are amazing and you'll love them as much as I do. She's so talented and creative :)
This is my RAK from my sweet friend Linda . She's so generous, she sent me all these beautiful images, the cute stamp from Cudlly Buddly and the black inkpad from VersaFine. She's the one who encourage me to do stamping :) Thank you so much my friend for your great help.
