Cork and glitter


Don't you hate it when the weekends are coming to an end? I sure do!
Yesterday I got together some girlfriends to do a little stamping, lots of chatting and ate yummy food. Thank you Sue!!! Sue spoils us by making such delicious food!
After my afternoon of stamping I was feeling inspired and thought I would whip up a card for this weeks My Favorite Things Week Stamp Club. You can read all about the challenge and see the sketch for this week right here.

I used one of the newly release PI images called Carnation. I paper pieced her dress using some of the same pattern paper I use on the card. The dp is from the Let it Bloom pack by Black Market. The rest of her was colored in with copics - E000, E00, E93 - skin/E27, E31, E35 - hair/V05, V06, V09 - socks and flower/ E31, E33, E35 - shoes/G07, G14, BG93, BG96 - stem and leaves. The carnation got a coat of stickles to make it sparkle and her shoes got a light coat of crystal lacquer.
The sentiment is from an A La Mode set called Birthday Girl.
The buttons are cut out using the Die-namic Button die on cork paper and I threaded sparkly twine through the centers.
So what do you think about the cork paper with this design? I always think of masculine when I see the cork paper and wanted to try it with a more feminine card.

Enjoy the rest of your evening and thank you so much for stopping by!!! I really appreciate the visits!!
