FTL99 - Bursting Blooms

This card is for two different challenges - The FTL99 sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping and the Wplus9 Design Studio - Color Cue. The image and sentiment stamps are from A Muse.
Here are most of the things I used to make this card with the exception of the EKSuccess Edge Punch and the Tim Holtz Fade Embossing Folder that I forgot to lay out - amazing the amount of things we can use to make even a simple card, huh? If you've got it - use it!! I sparkled up the flower with the clear glitter and toned down the DARK brown brads with a hint of white pigment ink. Guess what? I am on page 36 of the Hobby Lobby magazine this quarter. This is my first time being published since 2007 (and that was a one-time fluke) so I'm pretty happy that this is the beginning of a few times that I know of that I will be published. WHOO HOO!!
