SSiC Challenge #148 - "Sparkle"

Greetings, my friends!
Glad you decided to stop back again this week. Here is the new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for the week of July 15...your creation is due by July 21 at midnight!
Hostess: Miesje
If you stop by Miesje's blog or the SSiC blog you can read some lovely devotional thoughts about the scripture verse she chose for this week!
Challenge: Use sparkle!
Generous Sponsor: The Stamps of Life
They are offering a free stamp set of the winner's choice of up to $12.95 value!
Bible Verse: Matthew 5:13
"You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot."

Here is my take on this challenge...a b-day card for my 2nd daughter, Christin, who is an excellent example of being "salt"! She is a very committed Christian and is careful to show it in all areas of life. I'm in awe of her! And thank God for her and her wonderful testimony!

This card was fun to make but rahter time consuming! Here is my long list of ingredients:

DP's: K&Company - the prints, DCWV - aqua glitter
Dies: Spellbinders - "Fleur de Lis Accents", "Labels 15", "Foliage"
Stamps: Justrite - Happy Birthday circle,
             StampingScrapping Design - "Frou Frou",
             Woodware USA - "Mary & Friends" (Bless You)
Flowers: Roses - from my stash,
              Pizzazz Aplenty - Cherry Blossom (Cham. Pink),
              StampingScrapping Design - "Little Flower Pk-Aqua Marine"
Seam binding: hand-dyed with tea, scrunched to dry
SPARKLE: rhinestone gems from my stash and Stickles -"Star Dust"

I am also able to enter this card in two challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week at SSiC!
