How Much Glitter is Too Much?

I wandered into the dining hall today only to find the Guardian of Glitter adorning the tables with pots of shimmer bulbs. The flowers were already blooming, sending a dusting of sparkles atop each surface.
“I thought I’d brighten the place up!” she exclaimed, gesturing to all the magical blossoms.
I looked at the table tops, full of glitter and wondered how long it would take to rid the dining hall of the unyielding substance. “Don’t you think it’s a little much?” I asked.
“What do you mean?” The Guardian of Glitter coughed, a cloud of shimmering dust emerging from her already glitter coated lungs.

I started this flowery creation by cutting the flower pot out using the Freshly Picked cartridge. At the urging of the Lady Commander of Copics and the Guardian of Glitter, I added some sparkles to the blossoms, earning me +738 shimmery exp points. I cut the "doily" looking thing out using the Art Philosophy cartridge to add some visual interest to the background. I stamped the banner and birds from the Lawn Fawn “Bannerific” set. The sentiment came from the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiments” set. A little bow and some buttons finished off the front of this card.

On the inside I cut some shaped panels from the Art Philosophy cartridge and stamped the sentiment using a Close to My Heart set. The flower came from the Unity “Naturally Yours” set.

I stamped a quick ‘lil flower on the envelope using a Close to My Heart set I borrowed from the Guardian of Glitter.

This card will bloom in the following challenges:

Even though my lady mother taught me it was unladylike, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at the Guardian of Glitter. I will never understand her over enthusiasm for all things sparkly.
