Now for my card!!

For my card tonight, I used the GORGEOUS new Eliza set from the Old Hollywood collection! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. She was paired with Banana Split, Black Licorice, and Kraft card stock from MFT. I used some of the MME Lost&Found Two Sunshine paper pad. My border wash made with the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics, my flowers are the Mini Rolled Royal Rose Die-namics, and I used the Royal Leaves Die-namics. My sentiment is one of the new Birthday Trinkets, which was stamped on Kraft with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

To finish my card, I used the Black Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and some Michael's brads. I added the detail shot so you could see the glitter I put on her parasol, skirt, bows, and feather. It is SUPER sparkly in real life, but doesn't always translate to photograph!

Well, that is it for me for now! You are ALMOST done with the to the blog of our fearless leader, and all around FABULOUS person, Kimmie's Blog!!

Have fun on the hop!!
