Basic Grey Challenge blog is having another challenge. This time the theme is sparkle.
I really don’t have anything sparkly (like Stickles or embossing powder) except for a bottle of Jo Sonja Opal Dust which I have been using on decoupage item.
This time I decided to try it on the chipboard and the felt fusion. Luckily it worked on those Bohemian My Mind’s Eye chipboard and Queen & Co felt fusion.

Remember I mentioned earlier that I am going to use my own handmade crocheted flower in the next LO or card. Well, I managed to use one flower on the card above.
Here is the close up look of the flower. The only Basic Grey item I used for this challenge is the “hello” stamp. The patterned paper is Canopy Floral from Chatterbox. As usual most of the items used in this card are what I have in my stash for the past 4 years..huhu!
Oh, thanks to the eBay seller who gave me the bonus gift of Kaisercraft clear crystal. I was able to use the biggest piece of the crystal as the centre of my crocheted flower. It adds up the sparkle effect on the card..heh!

I am entering this card for the challenge as I fits the criteria of making my own embellishments.
