Ok...enough babbling, and on to my card!
The challenge over at High Hopes this week is "All About Kids". I love this stamp. I have never actually caught fireflies before. I did see a ton of them at camp this past summer. They are so beautiful. I stamped the image on Neenah, and used my trusty Copics to colour her in. I added some Glossy Accents on the jar to make it look like real glass. You know, I realized that I don't often put flowers on my cards!! I have a stash of them, so I'll have to make sure to pull them out more often. I used colours which I figure every little girl loves! This pretty double sided design paper is from Kaiser Craft. The cardstock is a mix of Coordinations and Stampin Up.
I thought I'd pull out my sewing machine and add some stitching. I really love this look. I kind of cheated and hand wrote the sentiment. I cut it out as a banner, and pop dotted the middle of it for some added dimension.
Here's the closeup ( I think you can actually see the Glossy Accents on this!!):
Kids are awesome! I am one of the Sunday school teachers at our church, and let me tell you...our kids bless us on a weekly basis! We love to encourage them to "shine brightly"! God made each and every one special (that goes for us big kids too!)...and He wants us to shine for Him! That's what I had in mind while I was making this card. I love how cardmaking gives you time to reflect on the person (or the reason) you are making the card for. Who doesn't love to receive a card that let's them know they are loved and appreciated!
Hope you have a fabulous Friday night...and be safe tomorrow if you are out trick or treating!
