Magic

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) I'm so sorry for my lack of posting last week. I started a book called On Folly Beach by Karen White and it truly was one of the best books I've ever read in my life. Every night when I got home from work, after dinner I'd head upstairs to read. I finished the book at the end of the week and boy oh boy was it good. Truly one of the best books ever. But, now that I'm done, I decided it was time to get back into the craft room :) I will also try to catch up on all your beautiful blogs, I've missed seeing your beautiful creations.




For my card today, I just had to ink up one of my new images from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Autumn Falls and I think she's gorgeous! I colored the image with copics (pinks: R81, R83, R85, RV21, RV23, RV25; blues: B000, B02, BG72, BG75; skin: E00, E11, E13; hair: E33, E35, E37) and then I inked around the image lightly with SU's Bashful Blue ink. I added some Stardust Stickles to the waterfall to give it a bit of sparkle. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Rose Red and Not Quite Navy). The design paper is from K&Co. For some finishing touches, I added a bow, corner cut outs from my cuttlebug die, pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I should be back to my regular posting schedule this week (unless another awesome book comes along) :) Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.
