Wishing Star

Hey peeps! I can't believe it's Thursday already. I've been working every spare minute for the past couple weeks, but tonight Mark and I get to take a break and go hang out at the Shakespeare Festival, eat lemon cake {my favorite}, and enjoy a play. Can't wait! :)

So it's Day 2 of our New Release Spotlights, and the Divas are peeking a set called Always On My Mind  over on the Verve Blog.  This set has 7 encouraging/missing you sentiments and 3 little whimsical elements, all designed to coordinate well with the other sets in this release.

For my card I chose the "wishing you were here" sentiment and the hanging star, stamped on an EK Success punch. I filled the center of the star with liquid glue, then added some turquoise Martha Stewart micro beads and some glitter.  I had so much fun with the micro beads, that I decided to add a strip down the side of my card as well. The papers are all from BoBunny and I used the blossoms Nestabilities, with a little Texture Fades embossing. I accented the Fountain Fun corner punch and the black mat with a white gel pen, then added a few little black pearls and some ribbon.

Okay, that's all for now. Be sure to check out the Verve Blog for some fabulous eye candy and a chance to win today's set.

  6. I love blog hops! Your designs are wonderful. Just when I tell myself I don't "need" anymore of anything, along comes something I can't live without. Thank you for sharing your talents.
