Happy Saturday!

Today I have a card to share that's my take on the current Get Your Diva On challenge.  It's a new challenge hosted once a month in our SCS forum and this month's hostess is Charmaine.  And the prize is a doozie... you get to be a Guest Diva for a Verve release!!!  The challenge deadline is tomorrow night (2/20), so you better get cracking!

When I first saw the inspiration photo Charmaine picked out, I totally dug the layout, so I sketched it out on paper.  Next I was inspired by the monochromatic colors with white accents, so  I picked out some pretty aquas in the Stella & Rose Hazel collection by My Mind's Eye and got to work.  No surprise I picked aqua, eh?  LOL

The cupcake in the inspiration photo looked almost beaded, so that inspired me to line my circle with glitter rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  My photo studio lights don't play nicely with the migraines I've been having, so I had to rush through the photo and couldn't quite capture all the glimmer and shine this card has in real life.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Kindness and is embossed in white.  I placed a couple sentiment flag diecuts on the side along with some Maya Road trim.  The butterfly centerpiece is from Prima and I added a couple butterflies using the SU! embosslits, then accented with some light sapphire rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Okay, I hope you have a fabulous Saturday!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
