SC225 Special Blessing, CC215 Essence of Love

Happy Wednesday!!!

This is my submission for today's SC225. What a fab Sketch!!! I know I'll be making another card with it today :)

For this card I used the Special Blessing Set. The DP is from the Parisian Breeze Collection. I punched out the little flower with the Trio Flower Punch.

I stamped the cross twice creating a 3D look. You can see this better on the second photo!!!

To finish it off I added the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Ribbon . Of course I had to add one of my sweet little Silver Pearls :)!!!

***************************

Here is my card I made for the CC215 yesterday. The colors are Basic Gray, Pink Pirouette (Pretty in Pink) and Rose Red.

I used one of my all time favorite SU Set's - Essence of Love.

I colored straight onto the stamp using Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red Markers. Next I trimmed it and pierced around the image. Then I raised it up with Stampin Dimensionals before I added it onto Pink Pirouette CS.

The sentiment was inked with Basic Gray and I also pierced below it. At last I added the Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, the Dazzling Diamond Glitter and the Martha Stewart butterflies with small little Silver Pearls attached.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!!!
