Combined Challenges

I think this card looks better in real life when you can see the glitter sparkle. However, I had fun combining two challenges into one card. One challenge was the Cuttlebug Challenge #13 to create a white card. Couldn't help but add a touch of blue. The other challenge was a Splitcoast Stampers technique challenge #202 - Tacky Glitter.

This is what I did. I used white gloss card as my base card, added strips of jak paper and then topped that with white glitter (really looks better in real life), cuttlebug embossed Stylized Flowers and Swiss Dots and added as strips in between the glitter. The topper is a daisy that I cut using my craftrobo, added a heart split pin for the centre of the flower and another to hold the 'Thanks' trinket which I was lucky enough to receive from my Secret Santa over at Craftmad.
