Thank you Nellie!!

Here is a card my daughter and I made this morning for her teacher. It was her 5th birthday and her teacher gave her a small gift.
The card HAD to be purple because it is both of their favorite colors!! I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple because I knew I would be adding alot of bling. The paper Lauren choose is from K & Co. We also used some bazzil bling cardstock in lilac. The sentiment is from a stampset I picked up from AC Moore and it is heidi grace I believe.

I colored her in with my prisma pencils and gamsol. I then decided to go around it with markers for a more defined look. Not sure if I hate it completely or sorta like the look. I am not really a marker person because I don't really like bright cards!! (Well, my bright cards anyway!) I like a distressed look!! (Hence my blog name!!) I also picked up these pearl stickers yesterday at my LSS so I added them onto her shirt!! I think they look so cute! We also added alot of stickles as you can see and used my glitter pen!! In the end though, Lauren loves it and that is all that matters!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!!!!!
