Summer silhouette sparkle - two cool 

The Summer Silhouettes stamp set is definitely one of my favorites from the new catalog.  I love the dandelion flowers—so soft and sweet!

CASEd from a Convention 2013 swap…is it yours?  Let me know!

The Crumb Cake card base is layered with a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Marina Mist card stock.  The images are stamped in Crumb Cake and Marina Mist on a 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla layer. 

I stamped the Crumb Cake flower stems first, leaving enough room for the blooms, then added the leaves.  After stamping the Marina Mist tops of the flowers, I filled in with the small flowers.

Sparkly Flowers—The two-step stamping with this image is easy to "eyeball"…it looks great wherever it lands!  I inked the flowers in Marina Mist, stamped once, then stamped immediately above it without re-inking for a lighter image.  I used the 2-Way Glue Pen to add dots of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to every "larger dot" on the dandelions.  The mini flowers have glitter, too!  The effect is absolutely amazing in person!  Sparkly goodness!

The sentiment is from the Happy Day set.  I actually stamped this first, so I could position the flowers and foliage around it cushioned with some white space.

It seemed like there was more room to stamp on the horizontal version…<hallucinating>!

I finished off the card with a Marina Mist Papillion Potpourri butterfly, stamped onto Crumb Cake card stock and punched with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  A few Rhinestone Jewels complete the sparkly theme!
