A very easy card with lots and lots of blending and sponging and that's about all. The CAS challenge can be found HERE
The two photos below show up the glitter mist much better, I've used the same spray on the card inside and just sponged around the edges with a little SU - So Saffron.
SCS wants everyone to play so all you ever need to do for the challenges is us the SU colors as a guide. I will have to admit shamefaced that I have every color that Stampin Up produced since 2006 when I was first introduced to the company.
I am however starting to be more discerning and this year I'm not getting Emerald Envy as it is very close to Glorious Green a retired color
The card is made out of one sheet of A4 X-Press It blending paper.

I then stamped the little bucket onto the front panel and masked this with a mask made from a post it note (see previous post on how to do this)
I then took a larger post it note and tore this to resemble the sand edge.
See photo opposite
To make the mist fill a Ranger Mini Mister or other fine spray bottle almost to the top then add about 1/4 teaspoon of perfect pearls powder, I used Sunflower Sparkles which gave me a lovely yellow gold sparkle / glimmer, shake the bottle and spray.
The further away from the area you want to spray the finer the mist, however a word of warning you can get a lovely glimmer on everything including yuor laptop and mouse lol, I was able to wipe it off before it dried.
I then did the same thing with the Crisp Cantaloupe making sure I didn't blend too far into the So Saffron and repeated the whole process again with the Calypso Coral, I then went over all of the colors with the So Seafront to blend everything in.
Once this was done I removed the masks Stamped the greeting in Calypso Coral then over stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I really wanted this to pop and be dimensional so I went over the words again with my Zig emboss writer pen and added more clear embossing powder and again while this was still hot added more embossing powder.
To give even more dimension to the card I mounted the front panel on some craft foam with X-Press It High Tack Double Sided tape.
