A Brightly Colored Columbine


I wanted to color one of the columbine peel off stickers by Elizabeth Craft Designs  but was not sure what they actually were so I googled them :)  They are all different colors but some can be very bright and colorful so that is what I decided to go with for mine.

I decided to use the Circle Accordion Die by Karen Burniston for this card.

Here is the Front:

I used some of the bees from the set as well and colored them with my copic markers.
I just love the sparkle the silk microfine glitter gives. I also used the Circle AC frame edges the Solid ones in the front and the polka dot ones on the inside.

Here is the card Opened up:

I used distress re-inkers to splash a little color on the card base. The Thinking of you is an Elizabeth Craft Designs die and I cut it 5 times in pink and them once in black and adhered them. Then I decided to put some glossy accents on top and make it shiny.

Notice the crease at the top of the second circle?  Well I wanted to write a personal message inside so I creased it and adhered it to the piece behind at the top so when you close the card from the back you can open and read the message. I usually do this so the crease is in the back for a circle card but on this one it would not work like that.

Here are a few close ups:

I just Love coloring the Glittered peel offs and The Circle Accordion card die by Karen Burniston makes it even more Fun!

Hope you have a great weekend!
Thank you for Stopping by.....
