Goth Night

It's Monday and I actually have a card post! Woohoo.  We broke records this weekend with our sunny weather.  It got up to 92 on Saturday.  Talk about a scorcher! Usually we have a month of transition before we hit those high temps and the humidity kicks in.  I was a walking sauna!  Much cooler today and even have some more storms comin in. 

So I was inspired to put together a card over the weekend.  I've got several images colored up and this one I've had sitting on my shelf with my papers picked out just waiting for inspiration to hit for a sketch or design.  I found one through The Sweet Stop that I thought worked great and I was off and runnin.

I started off with a 5X7 base of cardstock from Colorbok.  Then cut my DP, which are from Graphics 45.  I embossed the circles with diamonds.  The strip of ribbon is from RRR, and was a perfect match for this card.  The flower was from a candy blog, I just addedsome leaves and a button from Pizazz Aplenty to spice it up a bit.  This is actually my first attempt at coloring a Sweet Pea.  This gorgeous girl is ching-chou kuik's Soft Goth Night.   I saw one called "Field of Poppies" that is just gorgeous.  Check that one out here.  Perfect for this time of year.  She's also got some great insects that are just gorgeous!  Oh and the line of expecting die for!

Well thanks for stoppin by!  I'm sad to say I've lost a few followers but that's to be expected when you go inactive for a bit.  I hope you'll continue to follow me and I'll come see you too!  I love to be inspired by others!!
