Hello Friends

Hi everyone and Happy Friday (yay!) :) Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? I think we're going to go see a movie tomorrow and other than that, I'll be working. I have my first jury trial next Tuesday so I need to do some work for that. It should be exciting. I've done plenty of bench trials, but I haven't done a jury trial yet. I'll let you know how it goes :) Anyway, onto my card for today.

If you've been to my blog before, you know that I LOVE embellishments :) My favorite embellies are roses and pearls. I like to go all out and add tons of embellishments to the cards. One of my new year goals is to mix it up more in my card making. I want to of course continue making cards with lots of embellies, but I also want to try more clean and simple cards as well. This is a struggle for me but I'm working on it :) Anyway, for my card today, I decided to do minimal embellishments and to create a simple layout. I first stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PTI cardstock. Isn't this image adorable? I got her from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and you can find her HERE. I colored the image with copics and added Glossy Accents to her eyes (this has a great effect on the card). All cardstock is from Stampin Up and the design paper is from DCWV. I used my Martha Stewart Lacy Doily punch to create the lacy borders. I added the scrolls (you can find this punch HERE. I added some pearls and a sheer violet ribbon for a finishing touch. What do you think?

Well, I've got a mountain of work waiting for me so I better get to it :) Hope you all have a wonderful day. I'll see you back here tomorrow.

Lots of Hugs, Christine :)
