Lovely Little Lilac and Lavender Lass

I made this card, took a picture of it and then promptly forgot I did that! This is another Magnolia stamp and I used Shimmerz to paint my flower. I cuttlebugged everything and that which was not 'bugged got nestied!(LOL) I colored the image using copics, and then I added some interest with gel and glitter pens. I used my MS lace doily punch and the MS branch punch for the green sticky things behind the flower. I felt like she needed to say something... but what??? So I thought about what I do EVERY TIME someone gives me roses... I CHERISH them! I have them from dating my hubby,the wedding, the anniversaries to the birth of my daughter ( accompanied by jewelry!) So CHERISH was the word for this card! These magnolia images are so much fun to use and color. They are really easy to cut them out and put them where ever you want to! I also have to tell you all... I love Shimmerz as you well know... but it is AWESOME to use on primas... and wait til tomorrow til you see how I used it! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Give someone a rose today... I bet they will Cherish it!!!

Love this cutie little girl! And your story about roses too! Great idea to use shimmerz on primas - I have been admiring shimmerz but haven't gotten my hands on them yet - your card is stunning with all the sparkles and details!! Sorry to be a bad SCS blogger - things are a bit calmer here so I have a bit more time to blurf :) wishing all happy wishes!!

Dawn, all the cards are terrific. If I had to choose, my favorites are sending sunshine and photo booth. Both are very clever and very well done.
PS AHHHHHH! Thanks for the lovely comment regarding the DT!
