Click Here for my 200 Follower Giveaway!
I'm so super excited because I am just 6 more followers shy of reaching my 200 Follower goal! Thank you so much to all of you who have made this possible for me. Before I get to my card for today, I really want to take a moment to welcome all of my new followers who have recently joined my blog in the past couple of weeks. Welcome to all of my new bloggy friends. New or old, each one of you are one of life's blessings to me and I cherish the friendships that bloom, the inspiration that you bring to my world through your love of crafting and the many challenges you help me to achieve. Before I started blogging a little over a year ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I say that in a good way. I had no clue the beautiful people that I would befriend and have the pleasure of actually having in my life on a daily basis. I'm very thankful for each blessing that has touched my life in one crafting way or another. So thank you my friends.
Ok now on to my card....
For my card today, I decided to color up this adorable digi cutie, BBrat Girl Balloon Sitter by Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I think she is the cutest little thing! Isn't she adorable? I printed her out on some basic white CS by Georgia Pacific at 3.5". I colored her in using my Bic markers. I was very impressed with how well I was able to get these markers to blend. I added some Avocado liquid pearls to the balloon to give the balloon some texture. I just randomly created different sizes of dots. I also added some White Opal liquid pearls to create some jewelry for this cutie. I created three small dots for a bracelet, gave her some earrings, one small dot for a necklace line charm, created a cute headband piece in front of her bow and added a dot to each shoe strap. To finish her off, I added some rock candy stickles to the heart on her pants and to the bow. I love how she turned out! She was cut out using my Spellbinder's classic scalloped circle dies on the largest die and I inked up around the die using milled lavender distress ink. She is popped up on some foam tape and adhered onto my embossed front layer.
The front layer started off as a piece of vintage cream CS from Papertrey Ink and was then ran through my Martha Stewart Poppy embossing folder which was inked up with milled lavender distress ink. That main layer is mounted onto a piece of lavender CS from Recollections. The overall size of the card is 5"by 5". My sentiment comes from one of my new favorite stamp sets called, Across the Card by Neat & Tangled. I stamped it using my Hero Arts charcoal ink onto a piece of vintage cream CS which was then mounted on another piece of the lavender CS.
To finish off my card, I added a few handmade flowers that I made. I added a cute lush sparkle lightz to the center of each flower. I then added some pretty purple sequins around the card.
Well my friends, that's all I have for you.
I hope you have enjoyed my card today.
Until next time, enjoy life's blessings~
