Fun with Cosmic Glitter Flakes

I used something today that had been neglected for a long time--Cosmic Glitter Flakes. The base is purple cardstock which is overlaid with the glitter flakes and also gold and iridescent glitter (can you say, "hopeless bling addict?). I also used a sprig of dried flowers taken from the lovely bouquet my children gave me for Mother's Day.

These were used to make the card:

  • Spellbinders Aster Topper; Deckled Rectangles Large
  • Memory Box  Lorelai Outline Leaf; Fabulous Phlox (purple foliage)
  • Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly Punch
  • Gold Liquid Pearl (on the butterfly)
  • Dried Flowers
  • Pink Rhinestone
  • Sentiment Printed from My Computer

And here it is:


This was the first layer of purple cardstock with Cosmic Glitter Flakes:

Second layer with glitter added:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT

Make sure to stop by and join us again in another Challenge starting tomorrow. Leaving you with God's Word in Colossians 3:23-24 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Have a blessed day!
