This is how we roll!


     I'm soooo bad.  I really had another project that I needed to be working on but I had stamped this second Girlfriends image and after all the fun I had coloring the first one I just couldn't leave this one sitting uncolored on the table.  LOL  Hey, I'll use whatever excuse necessary.
     Started coloring on this last night and finished up the card today with lots of glam and glitter for these starlettes.  I created a frame mat for the image and added some bling around the edges.  My roll of Tim Holtz film strip has really come in handy lately as you can see I stuck a piece of it across the lower section of the card.  I die cut the stars from acetate and then glittered them.  I had as much fun as these gals look like they're having.  I guess I got the cards out of order since I imagine the couch scene came AFTER their night out.  hee hee
     Today starts a new challenge at the Catered Crop and Linda wants to see "Glitter".  Hope you'll pop over and play.
     I'm going to pop this card in the AI Girlfriends challenge.
     It's the start of a new week.  Hope it's fabulous for each and every one of you!

Supplies:  Paper--My Mind's Eye "Rosey", Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card, acetate; Stamp--Art Impressions "Uptown Girls"; Ink--Copics; Tools--Sizzix Stars #2, MFT Die-namics Sentiment Strips; Miscellaneous--Glossy Accents, Sakura gold and silver gel pens, Bronze Perfect Pearls, Recollections glitter, Tim Holtz Film Strip, bling from my stash

Do I love this??? OMG...YES!!! Their glasses look incredible. I'm assuming that's the silver gel pen you used? Fantabulous job on the girlfriend theme and all your glitter and bling seals the deal. So glad you derailed from your plans and decided to color this one up!!! :D
