In My Thoughts

This card started because I had a few left over pieces from another project!  White and shimmery paper is rather difficult to photograph!!!  The printed background paper is SEI White Elegance.  It was given to me by an especially nice person!!!  Thank you!!!! :)  It was sooo hard to cut into because it is so pretty, but I'm finally using it!!!!  The paper is white with an almost platinum metallic look too.  GORGEOUS!!!!  So I matched it with Star Dreams paper which really doesn't show up in the photos.

I've entered this into a Dare To Get Dirty 11 Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.

Did you know you can use alcohol markers on Star Dreams????  I knew you could use the shimmery Cryogen White, but hadn't thought of the using the Star Dreams.  Used the Rich Cocoa Memento Ink pad with some ProMarkers and Touch Markers for a nice soft look.

The Tilda is MINI #3081 Tilda with Hanging Heart!  Isn't she sweet??!!  I also used the #26 Heart Swirl DooHickey Die.  I believe the die is on re-order right now.  You can find all the Magnolia products at Magnolia-licious HERE.  Diana has a large selection and besides being really nice, has fantastic service!!!
And look I even did the inside!!!!  

I know we aren't supposed to just collect things, so decided to pull out a few things I haven't used or not for a while anyway.  For the printed paper, I used a Cuttlebug embossing/die, the borders are a MS punch, the flowers and leaves are EK Success punches, the flower centers are Punch Bunch mini sun punch, the corner punch is Creative Memories and the word stamp is Hero Arts.  Also put in some pearl drops with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen and a little Stickles on the wings.
My other project I'll have to wait to post since it is for a special occasion!!!  :)

There are some great projects entered at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge of Paper Only!  You still have plenty of time to come up with a Paper Only project to enter too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy every day!!!
