Sparkly Rose

Hi Stampers,
If you watch Splitcoast Stamper you've probably seen a couple of these Fun Fold cards around, and I love doing fancy fold cards!  So last night I made one starting with Gable Green card stock.  Then for the pattern paper I stamped and embossed the Spring Branch Background with Spring Willow embossing powder and cut it to cover the front panels.  Then for the rose I had the new Rose Creations from Spellbinders sitting on my desk that I hadn't use yet and decided to make a rose.  I have to say this is the prettiest of all the flowers I've ever made!!  I used all 6 dies for the rose, cutting 2 of the largest and smallest, using my Grand Calibur it was easy to do them all at once.  I sponged the edges with pink ink, then used Brushable Glue and Bubblegum glitter on all the pieces.  I let the glue dry overnight (since it was late), then this morning I use a bone folder and dry embossing tool to form the shapes of the petals and since the glue for the glitter was put on pretty thick it made the leaves sturdy and hold their shape very well.  I also did the same thing for the leaves and used Aqua Marine glitter.  The sentiment is from my new Bird Swirl stamp set, then I punched some butterflies out and covered them with the Brushable glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.
Here are a couple close up shots.

Hope you have a Bloomin' Great Day!!

Oh MY GOSH! That is the most beautiful card I think I've ever seen! I thought that rose was a silk one - I can't believe you stamped it! WOW!
