Hi Everyone! I have had the busiest week ever, and to be honest, I kind of can't wait until it's over. I made this card for several different challenges. I love this image so much and couldn't wait to use it one way or another. I couldn't decide which picture I wanted to post on here, so I just posted them both. I still think I could have taken a much better picture, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day to add a good photography session to it too. There is just tons of sparkle, shimmer and shine to this card. Of course, it probably doesn't surprise anyone that knows me that this is the kind of card that I love the most. I went into a bit of withdrawl a few weeks back thinking that Michael's (our only real craft store in this town) was discontinuing my favorite gemstones, so I tried to get my hands on as many as I could while they still had them. Come to find out, they were not only NOT discontinuing them, but bringing them back as well as expanding the line, so now, I have tons of gems to go crazy with, so here is my first example of crazy. : )
A very sweet, super talented lady who has become a friend of mine in the craft world is starting her own craft challenges, and they are really awesome. Her first sketch was too good for me to pass up, so I wanted to enter this card into her CLP challenge. If you have not been to Chelsea's blog yet, OMG, you do not know what you are missing. Don't wait a minute longer (ok, maybe a minute until you are done here : ) You will find yourself there very frequently once you see her work!!
I also want to enter this into the Gingersnap Challenge and Paper Blooms Challenge which are asking for bling on your project. Hmmmm, think I qualify? ; ) A few other challenges for this card are La-la land (distressing), Paper Maniac (embossing), Pollycraft (furry friends), and Cute Card Thursday's color challenge using pink and green.
I was pretty excited to find this many challenges for this card. I am pretty sure this is the most that I have done at one time.
Well, I am off to bed, so that Thursday will come and go and Friday will be here...and THEN the weekend...FINALLY!!
I hope you enjoy my card. Would love to know what you think. I always appreciate your comments and thoughts.
Have a great evening!!
