Can You Say 'Sparkle'?

This was my response to the third challenge from the Inklings cyberstamp, to use small stamps as the feature of your card. When I looked at my sets I really didn't have that many with a small stamp or two in them, but I picked this flower from Looks Like Spring as it was the smallest in the set and I don't recall using it before. I used Summer Sun, Barely Banana, Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst to stamp the flower, some being stamped without reinking to get the graduation of colour. Each flower centre was then treated to a dab of 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds. The sentiment, from the Warm Words set, was stamped with Lovely Lilac on Whisper White, punched out with the small oval, layered on a large Barely Banana oval, then holes punched in the ends and attached white organza and Apricot Appeal brads. I then ran the 2-way glue pen around the banana oval and covered it with Dazzling Diamonds before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

Excellent! I would never have thought of using that small flower for such a big part of the card but it works so beautifully.
