 created two projects for this challenge.  

For the first, I made a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card, using the Bluebells stamp from Sweet Stamps as the main accent.  The papers are from my stash.  I stamped the sentiment (from CTMH) in "Fortune Teller", also by Sweet Stamps.  I accented the Bluebells stamp, after coloring and blending, with stickles to make it shimmer.  I added accent pearls, a chiffon ribbon flower (handmade by me) with a Pinque Peacock 1 1/2" Satin button (to which I added some Krylon frost Glitter Blast) and an angel stickpin.  I just love this card and how well the Sweet Stamps products coordinate with Pinque Peacock's products! 

For my next project, and I'll admit this one took awhile, I made a wind chime.  I love to show the versatility of products…I want products I can use outside of my 
craft room, as I am a "home crafter".  I recently attended a tour of gardens, and one I fell in love with was based on the ornamentation.  Bound to add more glitz and glamour to my own outdoor oasis, I embarked on this task.  It all started when I found a cookie cutter in the outline shape of the "Pretty Petals" die.   That was the moment of conception.  Our entire family target shoots, and my awesome father in law collects spent brass that he cannot reload for me to use in craft projects.  My "chimes" are spent and painted 300 Weatherby double banded brass.  The chime is excellent!  I wire wrapped sea glass in cobalt, sky blue and clear to act as wind catching weights.  I assembled the chimes (which is not easy) and added the cookie cutter as the head of the chime.  I used the Pretty Petals die to cut a Blue/Purple Shimmer Sheets.  I added an extra layer of a thin stock in between the die and the Shimmer Sheet, so I only cut the outline.  I then cut an adhesive foil sheet per direction as to only get the outline.  When layered, you get a stained glass effect.  I attached this with strong nylon thread to the cookie cutter on top and bottom so it acts as a "spinner."  I finished the project off with vase filler stones to match the sea glass.  It makes beautiful music in my garden!  Along with pictures, I have included a brief video.  Please forgive the "fake" wind, I live in North Florida, and it's June.  Unless there is a hurricane, there is no breeze!. 

Now, you should be sure to head over to Irena's blog to peek at her beautiful creation and get all the details on how it was created. ~~~
