I LOVE THIS CARD

Yes, I do.  I hate to admit it, but I rarely get super excited about my cards.  Okay, sometimes I do, but I usually get exceedingly excited about other peoples' cards and then judge mine compared to theirs.  BUT THIS ONE is different.  It literally is my favorite card I've ever made!!!  Hopefully you agree with me...

Here it is~

Details~





SO, what do YOU think?!  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I mean, seriously!  I was totally surprised when this was the finished product!  I was expecting my vision to be the same hot mess most of my "good ideas" turn into...but this one actually came off well!!!  I've used lots of buttons and pearls plus some flowers--one hand crocheted by the lovely Ellen at In a World of Craft.  I also used dry embossing (on the black panel, even though you can't see it very well, and for the frame of the silhouette) and baker's twine to create this lovely thing. 

I'm so proud of it, I'm entering it into 5 challenges.  That's A LOT for one of my cards!  But I want to shout it to the world!!!

Here are the amazing challenges I'm entering~






Thank you so much for stopping by--I appreciate your willingness to allow me to brag about myself! ;)  I can't wait to see everyone else's amazing creations, too!  Happy stamping, friends! :)
