Challenge #21 at Amber's Crafts and Stiuff

Happy Hump Day, everybody!  It's time for a new challenge at Amber's Crafts and Stuff.  This week the theme is "Sparkle and Shine" and our wonderful sponsor  is Glitterbabe's Digis, which donated the images you will see on all the design team projects today!  I have a card that I hope will inspire you to enter the challenge.

As much as I love shiny, sparkly things, this challenge was right up my alley.  I used this really cute image of an old-fashioned telephone and updated it to look like one of the fashion phones you see in boutique stores.  What girl wouldn't love a hot pink phone like this one in her boudoir?

Because I wanted the phone to pop out at you, I used black and cream for the background papers and colored the flowers and leaves on one of the papers to coordinate with my color scheme.  I also covered the entire phone with Diamond Glaze to make it shiny and popped it up to make it stand up off of the background.  I also paper pieced it to add extra dimension.  Here are the details:

Image - Glitterbabe's Digis (Call Me)
Light pink cardstock - Core'dinations
Hot pink and black carstock for mats - Recollections
Designer papers K & Company - Black and Ivory 8.5" x 8.5" stack
Inside writing spot is a page from a notepad I bought at Jo-Ann's a while back.
Image and flowers on dp was colored with Copic markers
Black rhinestone flourish - Say it with Crystals

Rhinestones on ends of greeting die cut - Recollections
Metal dots used for the numbers on the phone dial - Imaginisce iRock

Greeting die cut - Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags
Call Me Greeting - my own lettering
Glaze on phone and Greeting die cut - Diamond Glaze by Judikins

I have not put a sentiment on the inside yet because I don't know yet who the recipient will be and I like to match my sentiments to the person who will receive my cards.  Be sure and pop over to Glitterbabe's Digi Store and take a look at her cute designs.

I haven't  had a chance to post the mini album I promised but I hope to get to that tomorrow. And don't forget that Friday, I'll have a new project for Just Wordz and Saturday will be a new Paper a la Mode challenge at The Outlawz.  I hope you're all having a good week.  Our temp reached 110 degrees today and that trend is supposed to continue through the rest of the week so I'm spending all my time indoors, crafting, job hunting and cleaning not necessarily in that order.  Until next time...

Happy crafting!
