Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop - Flower Layers #9

Hi and welcome to the Sizzix Fresh Vintage blog hop! We are on the 2nd week of the blog hop and for today's project, we were asked to use "flower layers #9" from Eileen Hull's Fresh Vintage collection. Since Halloween is coming up at the end of this month, I decided to make a card using the die.
I used Sizzix album, fanciful XL die for the background of my card. First I stamped "Happy Halloween" from The Stamps of Life clear set, and I used leftover die cut pieces in black and white from a class we did last year and embossed it with the spider textured impressions folder from the spider & spiderweb set.
I cut the label design with my Eclips machine using the basic shapes cartridge. While working on my project, I kept thinking about candy corn which is why I chose the 3 colors for my flower.
And because I love using glitter, I poured chunky white glitter over each flower piece. Here's a close up of the glittered flower.
To visit all the other designers on this week's blog hop, simply click on the navigation bar on the Sizzix Fresh Vintage logo on my sidebar.
