Sparkle and shine!


OMGoodness, I worked soooo hard on this card!!!      Ugh.   Sorry the color is so bad on these pics!   But, believe me you, I’ve taken at least FIFTY different versions, just trying to have them appear to be more of what they actually look like IRL!   Seriously!!!   This card was colored in February of this year!!   It was for Suzanne Dean’s very first editon of her awesome magazine – Through the Craftroom Door.   For some reason, no matter how hard I tried, it just didn’t work.   This gorgeous image is from Mo Manning, called  ~ Fairy Tabia.   



The papers used are from Memory Box –  Epiphany and Skylights.  I’ve highlighted around the image with Colorbox, Celadon and Distress, weathered wood.   Embellishments used:  Smooch Spritz, vanilla shimmer; Stickles, Stardust & Diamond; Bazzill Basics, self adhesive bling stones in white; Suze Weinberg’s Beadazzles; and Copics.

That’s it for this card!   

As you may know, my life is at a standstill right now – trying to sell our house!!   Unfortunately, it’s in a town VERY near to a huge GM plant that was shut down earlier this year and things are not moving very quickly at all!    So, we’re looking for a miracle right now!    All prayers are appreciated.   🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!   


Copics Used:   BG10, 11, 32, 93, 96;  BV00,02, 13;  B000, 60, 63;  R32;  E02, 11, 13, 15, 17, 18, 21, 25, 27, 31, 47, 95;  W1, 3;  T1, 3
