My Sweetpea DT submission

If you LOVE the new "Sweetpea" stamps that are out there, well you just might want to check out their new is a challenge blog. I must say I was VERY excited when I read about this new blog :)!  Anyways, they posted this sketch over there and are asking for a DT for this new challenge blog so please head on over to the "Sweetpea Stampers".

Here is what I created using this sketch that they gave us, so I could apply to be part of their DT :D! I am also using this card for Val's challenge she put out to us to use only the paper we have and not go out to buy more...tough challenge since there is ALWAYS new beautiful pp out there.  The pp that I used actually came from a scrap pp swap that my crafty friends this month, and I got Val's paper...ty Val :D I LOVE this paper!!! This card is also my card from yesterday, I am sorry it took me this long to post this card but I had 2 sick little one's here at got sick 3 days ago and my dd got sick starting late last night.
I also did  something a little different, that I have NEVER tried before but boy was I excited to try it out on this card :)!  I got a sheet of the "Sook Wang" double sided tape, cut it out to match my stamped image and stuck it on top of my stamped, I poured some "Glitter Ritz" with blue highlights in it over top of the tape to give the whole image a glittery/shimmery look to it. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a super crafty day and I will be back with today's card :)!
