Enjoying The Moment

I have been seeing these images a lot in challenges I have entered, yet could not find where they were from. Finally, a blog posted the site and over I went! It is from Sugar Nellie and you can find quite a few of her in digi form HERE. This one is called Connie.

I had so much fun coloring her once I decided what colors to use, lol. I am not sure why parts of her look shiny, I did not use shimmer/glimmer paper to print her out. It kind of looks pretty on her though.

I did used lovely shimmer paper that I purchased from Paper Temptress. I think this image just deserved the extra touch. I added Stampin' Up self adhesive pearls to her buttons, hair and the flower paper. I don't exactly think they should call them self adhesive. They fall off constantly! I had to photo this card 3 times since I did not notice missing pearls until editing the photos...GRRRRR....I am a bit upset I purchased a trillion of these, they are such pretty pearls. Some are so small that using glue dots is definitely out. Again, another reason for my love/hate relationship with SU :o(
I purchased a ton of paper from the UK. It seems to me that they have much prettier paper than we have here in the US. The shipping is a bit much, but well worth it. This is the first card I made with one of my many new paper packs. I am so excited to use many more. I tried to order paper that is a bit out of my comfort zone so as to have a nice variety. I did notice when if came in that I did not really do a good job at it, lol

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges.:
Paper Cutz: your choice
House of Gilli: pastels with bling
Stamp With Fun: Spring with cute stamp
Creative Card Crew: no rubber stamps

Hugs,
