Thanks for being patient with the slow stamper. This card is kinda different but I think I like it. I started with a close to cocoa base and stamped my floral bg stamp in chocolate chip on it. I layered a piece of white scalloped with my create-a-cut and then messy sewn. The pretty in pink layer was run through my cuttlebug polka dot folder and then I added my stardust glitter pen on the dots. Above the pink layer I put down a layer of o so sticky tape and then put clear micro beads on it. The next layer is au chocolate designer paper from Stampin'Up! and distressed on the edges. I used my nestabilities to do the layers with my main image. I stamped the blossom stamp in pretty in pink and then used my white gel pen and stardust glitter pen to highlight areas of it. The flower from Embrace life was stamped in basic black and then water colored with my aquapainter. I added the stardust glitter pen for high lights. It is really sparkly! I used punches and a cuttlebug die for the accent on the bottom right. The big brad came from All That Scraps. I finished it with a piece of chocolate poly twill ribbon from the new Stampin'Up! mini catalog. Thanks for looking and stay tuned tomorrow for more! It's my day off!

Love how you used the sticky strip to add microbeads - I need to remember that technique - this card is so yummy! Your work is always amazing - have fun stamping today too - we're on our way to Sea World, but I'm gonna check in later tonight to see what you've been up to! Happy Stamping!

What a beautiful card Lesa! Absolutely love all the different details you did to make this card! Somehow I don't know how to come up with such great stuff! So I'll be coming back for inspiration.
Thanks for dropping by my blog. Haven't been very faithful in my posting.

So very cute. That flower stamp makes some stunning cards. I love the polkadot texture with glitter. How are you doing? I've not been posting lately because I've been spring cleaning and getting food storage--it's great to finally be healthy. Although I am finding it hard to bend at the waist anymore. Today I ground some of my wheat and made cookies. I'm in this baking mode--I haven't bought store bread in three weeks. Go me!
