Serenity

Don't you just love the colors in this card?
  It's so soothing.....



The color choices came from the 


The gorgeous graphic/digi came from The Graphic Fairy.  
She has the most BEAUTIFUL graphics and digis available for free on her website!!!  
You should really check this one out!


 I am also entering Sweet 'n Sassy's SNSDC88 challenge - 
Anything Goes/Digital with this card @

The Serenity sentiment was from some vellum sayings
 I bought years ago  
 I just scanned it on my printer -
 adjusted the size to fit my card, printed on mint green cardstock, 
cut with my Grand Calibur with a Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B die, 
added the plum colored backing to it 
(also cut with the same dies - next larger size). 



The sentiment and ribbon allowed me to enter this card in 
The Perfect Sentiment's PSC62 - Encourage Me with Ribbon challenge @ http://perfectsentimentschallenge.blogspot.com/2013/01/psc62-encourage-me-wribbon.html

The tulle was in my stash from a wedding I did
 YEARS ago. 
 I simply took my green stamp pad and inked it up. 
 Voila! 
 Perfect for the mint green I needed in this card 
AND
 the recycled material makes it possible to enter this card in

Some embossing, 



I added liquid pearls to the flowers
 (and as some extra "bling" on the card) to give them some shine



Sometimes you have to invent ways to do this craft
 (especially when you are a newbie, like me).
  This is my paper weight from my desk -
 works great to keep the tulle down until the glue dried.


 Notice the extra bling aroud the ribbon
 (this was added, simply due to a 
"minor" glue accident, but turned out really pretty. 
 Those of you who know my work, know that I can
 NEVER 
have enough bling and glitter!!!
