So Sweet So Precious....

I wanted to share this card before I head for bed tonight. I'm "planning" on having a yard sale tomorrow....I've been de-cluttering my craftroom all week of stuff I don't use and will never use. I say "planning", because I'm still trying to talk the hubs into getting up early with me on his day off to help me out. We'll see about

I'll also have another freebie sentiment to share with you all following this post!

For my card today, I've used a sketch from "Sketch N Stash" and the color combo from "Color Throwdown". I'm in love with these colors and so happy I actually had some Copic colors to match the theme!

Before I went om my craft break I had put in a huge order for more embellishments, like the pearl hearts, metal corners and crystal stems from "WOC"....aren't those hearts gorgeous! I also ordered some of those cute little crocheted butterflies. They are the perfect size!

I've used one of my super duper adorable Milly stamps from "Lili of the Valley". When I finally took on the task of mounting my stamps, she was one of the first ones I did and couldn't wait to get inked up!

When I put in my last Copic order, I finally got me some of those glittery Spica pens. I'm not really thrilled with them. Not sure if you can see in the pic, but I added some to her hair, the butterfly and flower too. I may be using them wrong...or are they suppose to be like that? I used the clear on this image....I kinda like the colors though for journaling or letter writing. I think I may just stick to my beloved Stickles! lol

The sentiment stamp is one I created and is part of the girly themed set recently added to my shop. I'll be sharing this particular one as a freebie following this post! I also created another one of those scrap image pebbles....they are so fun to make!

I partially stamped the image again on the inside...I really love the look!
