DDD January 2019--"Encouragement"

Hi all, I gotta say this just isn't the way to start a new year....uggghhh...I missed the posting date for my card as I wasn't feeling well. I took my camera to work along with the card....the picture card was in my computer at home....went home to take pic and post last night. I had set the card off to the side of my desk----card was at work once I got home. I finally got everything together today so I do apologize for all of it....

On to happier things. I got my picture taken and I am posting this on my lunch...woohoo. Our hostesses this month were Donna for the Dazzlers and Judy for the Divas. We got a great kit from Judy here is what she wrote:


Donna and I thought that we would like you all the create a card that would encourage the recipient in their quest to achieve a goal, overcome a trial or loss.

Included in your kit:

Designer Papers: s e i "Field Notes"; DCWV "Copper Luxury"; echo park "Handmade Journaling"; and an unknown

Stamped Image: Paper Pretties "Flutterby" (girl and sentiment "Flutter your wings and fly; There She Goes "Spread your wings and fly" sentiment. Images have been stamped with Momento Black Tuxedo ink.

Embellishments: ribbon, twine, paper flowers and leaves, pearls, rhinestones and butterfly brad from various companies.

We would "encourage" you to send your card to someone you feels needs encouragement.

                   I hope this kit inspires you to create a card that will bring a smile to the recipient!

I colored up two images one using copics and one with colored pencils. I used the image I colored with pencils. (Im trying to expand my horizons). I then used liquid pearls in white to accent the jewelry our little gal is wearing and of course I needed to use some glitter for the flower and butterfly..a card without a bit of glitter seems a little bare to me. LOL. 

Here is the front of my card:

I used the rhinestone brads on the front of my card that we included in the fun embellisments and I used three of the designer papers. I mounted my image on a thin piece of mounting tape to pop the image out a bit more. I also distressed the black bottom layer behind the image and the actual card is mounted on a white panel (hard to see by the picture.)

Here is the inside of my card:

The inside of my card is pretty basic. I made a little bow/flower out of the pretty sparkly twine. I also used the left over dsp from the front to mount the sentiment Judy sent along with her kit..Thank you Judy for the wonderful kit. 

I hope you like the card and I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by. Please stop by the other duelers and check out their creations, I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Until next time,
