Hibiscus card

Hello all and Happy New Year!!! I can't believe it's 2016 already, last year seams to have flown by. I was a great year as I got to expand my crafty horizons when I was excepted onto two design team (one I'm posting for today). I was unbelievably excited and still am!!! 

Today's card is for the a2z Scrapbooking DT. I was elated when they asked me to stay for another term! The challenge for January is Fireworks (add some glitter/bling to your card). I finally broke out my layering Hibiscus set for the first time! 

I started by stamping the flower in the corner, masked it and stamped the two on each side. While it was still masked I stamped the layers on the side flowers, removed the mask to stamp the layers for the middle hibiscus and then masked and stamped the leaves. Added the sentiment (which will be appropriate for my friend in Colorado, who's birthday is in a few days). She's originally from California and loves the warmth and sunshine! Anywho... I digress! 

To finish my card I added stickles to highlight veins in the flowers and leaves, and dotted some around the flowers and sentiment.

Can't wait to see what you all will dazzle us with this month. Visit the blog here to enter the challenge for you chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store!
