Crazy Crafter Highlights - Oh Hello Friend

Hi everyone!
I hope you have all had a lovely week.
I am once again playing along in the Crazy Crafters Weekly Highlights.
I love that as a team we can share what we have been up to and it's always such a creative inspiration clicking around everyone's blogs. Creativity is best when shared!

Today I am sharing the card that I made for my swap when I attended Onstage in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago.
This was a relatively quick and simple card that I was able to put together as I made SIXTY of them! was madness. I even had my three year old helping me cut out the bits and get a production line happening. 

When making my swap cards I wanted to make something that represented me and for that I knew I just had to go with blues/greens and bright colours. Of course it also needed a touch of gold and I think my personality is bright with a bit of glitter! 
They do say everything is better with a bit of sparkle.

To keep the card design simple I decided on using an embossing folder on the background so I could create lots of texture without too much work.
Our embossing folders at Stampin' Up! are great for this and come in so many designs.
For this card I used the Petal Burst embossing folder which you will be able to find linked in the supplies below.

Here's a bit of a close up of the card and some of the texture and embellishments I added.
I just love the crinkle ribbon in Night of Navy (from the Naturally Eclectic suite)
I also added some metallic gold thread, a gold faceted gem and a bit of gold glimmer paper.
The photo probably doesn't do it justice, but I also added lots of clear Wink of Stella to my flower.

I hope you enjoyed this look at my swap card and enjoyed a little look at what was on my craft desk recently.
Please do check out Kylie's blog for the rest of the cards in this week's highlights and if you like my card, I'd love you to vote for it!

Crafty hugs.
