Happy Wednesday! :) I hope you've been enjoying your week so far. Mine's been pretty good. Yesterday it was Fat Tuesday and I really enjoyed seeing people dressed up in all those costumes; some costumes were really good!
I didn't dress up, but I was being creative in my own way - with papers. ;) I made this card ...
I received these beautiful papers from a friend of mine (thank you sweetie!). The image I used is a sweet Marci from LLLC. I coloured her hair and skin with distress inks. The balloon, dress, shoes and hair accessories were paper pieced. All of the dies I used on this card (decorative square behing Marci, swirls and flowers) are from Marianne design. Small flowers in the corners were made with craft punch and I put a crystal in the center of each of them. For the center of the bigger flowers I used golden brads from my stash. The white piece of cardstock was embossed with Anna Griffin's embossing folder (Acanthus). I also used a 25 mm grosgrain ribbon from Crafty ribbons.
Have a wonderful day!
