Twinkling flowers all in a row

I do like this technique of stacking die cuts atop each other. My first card you can find here and I explain a little more. For this card I used another poppy stamps die well its likely to be poppy stamps or memory box as they are the majority of dies I own in what I'm sure is quite a small collection (but it will grow).

I used the brighton flower border not sure if it works as well as less intricate dies but I think I made it work. This time I cut 5 in white card and coloured the edges of 4 and one completely using promarkers before gluing and stacking them, I used one of the negatives to keep the shape so it didn't go awry too much. Once dry I stuck straight onto a white base card landscape.

Once that had dried I went over it all with pva glue as I wanted to make it glossy and discovered my glossy accents had become solid and stuck the lid tight so when I tried to turn the bottle top off it split and hence ended up in the bin. I know I could have waited till I got some more but I decided to improvise and it worked quite well I think.

I finished my card with some pretty little gems for extra sparkle. Not sure what sentiment to add as I do have some girly birthdays coming up next month but its also sisters day on the first Sunday in august and I think it would make a pretty cool sisters day card too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

crafty galz corner - anything goes

Kitty Bee -girly cards

Pearly sparkles - girlie

Unstampables - everyday is special
twist lots of colour

Poppystamps challenge - just bling it

Right back to my die selection to see what other dies I can stack ,its pretty addictive and love the results too.
