Happy World Cardmaking Day!

Hi everyone and Happy Saturday and Happy World Cardmaking Day! :) I hope you all get lots of time in the craft room today :) Any exciting plans for the weekend? Today I'm going to go see the movie Wall Street with a friend (hubby has opted to stay home and watch football :) ). Tomorrow I plan to do some chores and craft :)

For my card today, I decided to ink up this absolutely gorgeous image from Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Lilly Dream and I think she is absolutely gorgeous. I had so much fun coloring her up. I colored her with copics and then sponged around the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink using my blending tool. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from The American Paper Co. (I got it at Michael's). For some finishing touches, I added a bow (tied with my Bow Easy tool), pearls, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
