This weeks sketch was quite a challenge and I had to think hard how to do the four pieces in the background since my Christmas Stampin'UP! order arrives tomorrow with all my Christmas Designer Series Paper. So it seems I had the same idea as Barbara to use the Petals a Plenty embossing folder to create my paper. I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock with the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. Then I "smooched" (I'm sure smooch can be used as a verb too) it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to get some shimmer but I also hit each raised petal with some "Champagne Mist" shimmer paint to get even more shimmer. Unfortunately this does not show too well in the picture but believe me in real life it glows! The stamp set is the new Bells and Boughs stamp set with the flower center made sparkely with fine Galaxy Champagne glitter. The Cherry Cobbler ribbon just finishes off the card. The markers used to color the center are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Old Olive. I like the way the card turned out. I would never have thought of this idea if I hadn't been trying to do the 411 challenge. Thanks to the 411 operators who come up with all these challenge ideas.
