 Wonder who the Mystery Host will be this month????

I have had so much fun with this challenge, I love getting surprises and my bag was full of great surprises!!  This is what I came up with using the Cherry Blossom stencil, embossing paste, glitter, svg files and the Fan Geisha stamp set.

To start my card I decided on a swing card, tutorial on how to make found HERE.

For the front of the card, I used the Cherry Blossom stencil with Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste.  I decided that I wanted the paste a pale pink color, so I used a small amount of pink gelatos and mixed it with the paste. While the paste was wet I lightly dusted with Sparkling Snow glitter for that bit of sparkle.  Next the center panel was embossed using Anna Griffin embossing folder.   Silver sparkle was added around the panel using a glue pen and Reflection glitter.  

The fan was cut from a svg file using the Silhouette.  I placed strips of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape on the back of the fan openings and glittered using, Peruvian LilyFlirt and ParisianMist glitter.  A small gold bead was placed on the handle.

 A small flower and leaves were die cut and inked with distress inks.  For a little sparkle on the flower I used a paint brush, brushable glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.  A small pearl was placed in the center.

 A look at the card from the other side.

The image was colored using copic markers.  The sparkle was added using a glue pen, Daisy, Spirited Green and Champagne glitter.  Using a glue pen along with Sparkling Snow sparkle was added to the edges of the image panel.

The sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed using Black Detail EP.

One last look at the card opened to the back panel.  

I'm leaving you with a peek of the other 3 projects of mine using the goodies in our surprise bag.  Hope you will check back to see the reveal of them.
