Serenity NOW!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!! Hope it's been a wonderful week so far! I have been trying to get organized for a crop I am going to this weekend - I am heading to the Archiver's here in Indy for a Cricut Swarm and I am SO excited!!! Even better is that one of my best friend's is coming up from Southern Indiana for it and she's gonna stay with me - WOO HOO!!! It's gonna be a slumber party!! Hmmm....she'd probably better sleep with one eye open or she might end up with her hand in a bowl of warm water - LOL!!! (I'm totally kidding, Jennifer - or am I?? BWA HA HA!!!) Hee anywho - I am really looking forward to this weekend and I am sure I will have plenty of stuff to share with you on Monday.

The card I have for you today is for Cindy's MFT sketch challenge over on SCS - you can view her sketch here - I always love Cindy's and Frances' sketches - they do a fabulous job hosting this challenge!! I tried a little something different with my card today - I hadn't done anything with my Holly Berry House medallion stamps recently and this "Earth Whispers" medallion was screaming to be paired with this MFT "Serenity Now" set. I colored my image first with Copics - I even used one of the little accessory stamps that come in the stamp for the decoration on her shirt. I drew in the flooring too with my Copic mulitliner pen. I then picked out 2 colors from my image to do my medallion stamp in. This medallion would normally go to 6 layers when finished - but since I was going to place my image in the middle of it - I only went to 4 layers and then placed my image in the center of the flower. I used the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder to emboss my purple and light blue panesl. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby as are the little pearl stickers. Thanks so much for stopping by - come back tomorrow - I have an oh so sweet Hanna card to share with you - I'll give you a hint - an apple a day.... ;)
