You are my happy


     Managed to figure out how to use the sketch this week at Stamping Bella so I can play along.  It was such a hardship to make another Uptown Girl card.  LOL  Yeah right!  I STILL have a drawer full I haven't inked yet so I'm having fun playing with them one by one.  Like the last card I only used part of the image for the card.  I know that's old hat for a lot of you, but it's a new technique for me and I really like it.
     You can't really see it in the photo, but the silver paper that I matted the DP and image with is shiny and shimmery.  It's a nice contrast with the other papers.  I added some Creative Inspirations Paint to the pink roses and some Gold Perfect Pearls to the yellow ones and her dress for a bit more shimmer.  Pulled out some Glimmer Mist to dye the ribbon to match too.  Another CAS card, but I like it.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  2. Ahhhh, Tracy!!! This is totally gorgeous! I love the sentiment and I love this stamp! The first time I saw it, I thought "This will be the image I'll use for my engagement or wedding invitations whenever Philip finally decides to propose", hehe :-) Love the ribbon as well :-) Thank you for this darling card. It brightened my rather grey day :-) Hugs!
