Upgrading Upsy Daisy


dscn6750You might remember this card from THIS post.  Well, I feel like I'm "cheating" because including this post and the one I just mentioned, this card has been on my blog 3 times!!  That post with the link above actually has a link to the card when I originally made it ;)  Well, what I did was take one of my leftover card fronts and added some Stickles to the flowers and put it on a Whisper White card base.  I think the white base really lightens the card up.  The glitter in the Stickles also does that, and I like this version the best!  Of course, I love anything (and everything) that sparkles!!!  What do you think?  I've added a little pic of the close-up that you should be able to click on to enlarge.   Have a great day!
