Adding a little sparkle to life!

Good afternoon and how are you all today?
April has hit with vengeance, the last couple of days it has been none stop rain.
Drip, drip, drip little April showers!
You know what rain is good for though, staying in the warm and crafting!
Who said housework?!  Really.

Did you have a good weekend?
I had a very relaxing one.  Enjoying a couple of family films, some crafting and some fine food and drink.

Over the weekend I have continued with the CAS style of cards.
It really is me just now.
I decided to get my Sparkle medium back out and my stencils.  This is what I came up with.

I have used the daisy stencil together with Gold shine, Sage green and Diamond sparkle.
The sentiment is by Papertrey ink and then I have layered on matching green card stock.
You don't really get the best sparkle effect in the photo as it is quite a dull day today.  The green matches so well when the light hits the card.

I am entering this card to the 4 Crafty chicks challenge for this month's anything goes.

I have a hankering to get some more glitter out!
I think I might be coming down with something, not normally being a glitter girl.  Maybe I should get some inks out instead and get all grungy, that might help my affliction!
Maybe not.

That's all from me today I seem to have caught the card making bug again so I am away to play. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Hi Erika,
what a really gorgeous card.
I love those sparkly flowers, and your very fab CAS design.
Great sentiment stamp also.
So sorry your weather has been horrid over the weekend.
Still when the weather is not so nice it's an ideal time to craft.
Housework who used that swear word. LOL.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
