Sparkle challenge card

Guess what? It is almost Friday so time to celebrate right! And I don't work this weekend so even better reason to celebrate! Okay, onto my card cause that is the real reason you are here. My mom asked me to make a card for her friend for her birthday and her friend was a schoolteacher so I got a chance to use one of my newer stamp purchases, Bookworm Ruby. I have loved this collection of stamps for awhile and when they had a sale a little while back I caved and bought a few.


Paper is by October Afternoon, colored with copics of course with some glossy accents on the glasses and I used a spica glitter pen in garnet to color her glasses. I mean, who wouldn't want red sparkly glasses? I am entering her into the Sparkle Creations challenge which is one of the best sketches I have ever used, it will definitely be used again. Ok, hope everyone enjoys their weekend and don't forget to come back on Sunday for my Paper Sundaes post.

Fabulous card Amanda! Your coloring is beautiful (as always) and I love those bright pretty papers. Sorry I haven't been commenting but I've been away at the lake and blogger was being very bad for me.
