My daughter

asked me if I could make her several cards recently as well as one "special" looking one.  I told her "no problem!" as I had a few new Spellbinder dies that I wanted to try out!  So, this is one of the cards.  I also am going to enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge of Just Add Pearls.

I have been loving the new dies that I have purchased and they just seem to lend themselves to the addition of pearls and other bling.....of course, when is bling ever NOT needed right? And besides the little bitty pink pearls I also used pearlized pink card stock.  I really love how it looks embossed! The image is a large background stamp from Heartfelt Creations.....colored up and cut down to size.  I colored this with Faber Castell Big Brush markers and "highlighted" the image with white pencil and stickles.

I had fun with this card and it was fun to sit and play for a while. It has been a crazy busy week and I am looking forward to my husband coming back home on Saturday.  I am actually going to get up at 5:00 tomorrow with my son (who gets up to swim) but I plan to craft a bit before I go for my walk....I feel the need to INK!
Be well,
Sheila

Wowzer, girlfriend! This is so stunning. I had to enlarge the pic to get the full impact of the shimmer and bling. Love how you used the white pencil - fantastic idea. I also love that your kids commission your work - what a joy to be able to "shine" for them in this way. I have missed you - you never disappoint. Glad you are still walking.
