Sister Act Card Challenge #2!

Hi, my beautiful friends!!!

I know, I've been MIA for a while!!!  I do miss blogging and crafting a lot, but this month is quite hectic as there are so many things happening in my life... I'm hoping to be able to share some of those things soon! (;  But I must say, I have definitely missed all of you very much!!! XO  At least I get to pop in once a week for now, since I'm in the Sister Act Card Challenge DT!!  And today we start a new "Anything Goes" challenge!  I hope you'll join us this week if you didn't get a chance to last week, or perhaps you can play along again if you participated last week!!! (:




The DT got the opportunity to work with digi's from our sponsor this week:  The Doodle Garden!  Which, I should probably let you all know that the winner of this week's challenge gets to choose their 3 favorite digi stamps from the online shop!!  Woohoo! (:




The image I used for my card is Muffin Mouse.   I printed the image onto watercolor paper.  Then, I water colored the image using my spanking new Inktense pencils--SO fun!!!! :D  Once my image was dry, I took a thin paintbrush and layered the frosting on the cupcake with stardust Stickles.  I also added liquid perfect pearls (in white) to make 'em look like pearl sprinkles.  The lilac card base if from Hero Arts (LOVE my HA card bases!) and I stamped the background onto it, using my Hero Arts shadow ink in grape juice (in love with my HA shadow inks!!!).  I also inked the edges of the panel with the same grape juice shadow ink--this helped frame the panel without having to add another layer of card stock! (:  To finish off the card, I tied a bow using this luxuriously beautiful purple satin ribbon by Kate's Paperie (in NYC), which my cousin Carlos gave away to me nearly a year ago along with all his other yummy crafting goodies!!! *grin*



It makes me SO happy that you've stopped by to "see" me today!  I really hope you join us this week at the SACC by linking your cards!  I'm hoping to be back soon and perhaps share some of the things I've been working on...  How 'about you guys?  What have you been doing lately?  Hope you're all doing well and that the LORD is blessing!  Have a delightful Sabbath and a fantastic weekend!! Xoxo

Love,

Grisel
