Primarily a cardmaking and papercrafting blog featuring both my own creative designs-including the products and techniques I used to create them-as well as projects by the Sparkle Blends Designing Divas team and other Guest Designers. I welcome comments, design suggestions, and questions, but I do ask that they remain respectful and kind.

You're My Lucky Charm Fawntastic Creations Using Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends Test Your Luck
This is one of my favorite months because green is my favorite color! I used the Sparkle Blends Test Your Luck on this card.
It has several shades of green in it, seed beads, micro beads and some fimo cut outs! I love when sequin mixes throw in those cute little extras!
I started by cutting my base panels and stamping my sentiment
I used the My Luck Charm set from Lawn Fawn.
I stamped my clovers and colored them with copic markers. G43 and G46.
I then decided that I wanted to add another base layer to my card so I trimmed down my top panel. I did trim it just a little to much making that bottom window not really usable. I figured my sentiment would cover most of the window anyways so no big deal.
I put my shaker together. It kinda looks like a crazy hot mess!
Good thing it is on the back and no body sees it!
I added my top panel to the base and attached my sentiment banner and clovers to the front. I added a few sequins to the sentiment banner and top of the card.
After getting everything all together I realized I could have still made my bottom window into a shaker because the sentiment banner would have covered the foam.
