About Me

My photo

Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

Suzy Bee's - Glitter and Sparkle

Time for a new challenge at Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge Blog. The theme this week was my choice and I thought it would be nice to do Vintage Glitter and Sparkle! Our sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine.

Here is my DT card: 

I got to work with this adorable image from Lacy Sunshine. I colored her with my promarkers.  The papers are from my stash. Stampin Up had a sale and I just had to get some.  How can you pass up sales? I used ribbon along the left side. The ribbon has glitter snowflakes on it that didn't photo well. The trim is also very sparkly. Really need to work on my photography skills.  I added pearls and a resin piece for embellishments.  I used my snow writer to make snowflakes around her.  The sentiment is a die and clear stamp matching set from My Creative Time.  I used dark green paper for the sentiment.  It really photographed black. Yuck.   The card layout was inspired by the sketch at Sketch n Stash.

We would love to have you link up your projects with us today.  For more inspiration and to find Mr. Linky click here.
