Glittery Get Well Wishes

Welcome to a new Clear It Out Challenge this week! To win, you have to show a picture that inspires you, as well as your creation based on that picture. Our stash item this week is something GLITTERY. So without further ado, here is my card this week:

My inspiration was this photo of purple orchids and the summery shimmer on everything you see. I love the beauty of orchids, yet have never been able to keep one alive very long. Still, I tried to capture the greens and golden light in this photo by adding some gold glitter paper and champagne sparkles to my paper flower card. I hope it will brighten someone's day!
 Here is a close-up of the flower. I colored and then cut out the flower and the two smaller leaves on the bottom. Lastly, I popped them up with dimensionals and added the glitter.
Show us your inspiration and/or use some glitter stash over at the Clear It Out Challenge this week! Thanks for stopping by!
