Less Is More #405 (Recipe)

Hi there! It's time for a new challenge over at Less Is More! We have a recipe to inspire you this fortnight.

Here are the elements you can choose from -
sparkle + gloss, 
sparkle + matte, 
sparkle + pearl, 
sparkle + chalky

I decided to go with sparkle + matte.

I used a new technique to me to create my window. I sprinkled some embossing enamel into a laminating pouch then ran it through my laminator. I saw done by Jennifer McGuire.
I created my sparkle by using embossing enamel with gold sprinkles through it. I also covered my cardinal with a touch of sparkle.

The matte element was created by using distress inks to create my background panel and the strip for the sentiment.
