Dreams come true.....

Good Afternoon! I got my stamps from Sugar Nellie and just had to use this one! She is so cute and I love her that much more colored in!! I have followed the sketch from The Next Challenge. It is a fabulous one and the DT cards are so pretty I had to try it out!! Isn't she so cute!! My girls were all fighting over the card!! (LOL)(that makes a mom feel good!) Anyways when I started the sketch I had the papers all picked out but when I got to the panel at the bottom I didn't have enough of any paper that matched to fit so I embossed some white and threw that in. Pure white is my favorite (non) color so I love it but hubby thinks there is to much white in the card!! (what does he know LOL) I have used alot of twinkling h2o's and pearls to make my card extra girly! The sentiment is from a set I got from Micheals for 50% off.

Paper: MME
inks: distress inks and twinkling h2o's
accessories: flowers ~ Prima, pearls ~ Melissa Frances and Basic Grey

Well I hope everyone is having a gorgeous day!! It is 70 and beautiful here! We are ready to head out for some badmitton! I can't wait til they can actually hit it back to me!! (LOL)
Hubby had to work all week-end to prepare for an inspection so I have decided this morning that I am going to head to NY for the holiday week-end so I will see you on Tues. I hope you all have a great week-end as well!!
