Double trouble!

Saturday at last! Hope everyone has had a great week and are looking forward to an awesome weekend. Today's post is for the challenge at Kraftin Kimmie's and our hostess this week is Cheryl and she wants us to use two images on our project. She has used the awesome new image Gadget Girl on her card and if you play along and your name gets picked then you get this stamp, for free!

I have used two of the fairy stamps by Annie Rodrigue and tried to use my background paper as the setting for a little forest scene. I made my own pearl flourish by cutting out an acetate flourish then using liquid pearls on it. Not too bad but can use some practice. One tip I forgot, when you are cutting out images this closely, it is always nice to outline them in black marker, makes them look a little more finished. I tried to pull mine off to fix it but they aren't going anywhere now! Also, the Frugal Friday specials are now available so click on the link to see what is on sale, but only til Sunday!

Amanda can you my long paaz? OMWord, this is GORGEOUS!!!! Oh wait did I say GORGEOUS? I always laugh as we are always the hardest on ourselves, but OMWord.... This is truly GORGEOUS! To me it looks like a painting by Rembrandt. Your papar are just fantastic and you have colored these two sweethearts to perfection. I love that you used some paper flowers to bring out a 3D effect to your card. Great job on your homemade pearl swirl. I would love to see how you made this step by step. Can you imagine not having to pay for all those that we have to have? lol... Anyway my friend no kidding this is truly GORGEOUS and I a just love it. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Lisa
