A Pin...

Hello lovely bloggers!

I have another card using Heather's wonderful image - something I made using a pin. I'd been swapping on Life at the Scrap Beach and one of the swaps I entered was "Pins". You'd be surprised how creative one can get with a simple stick pin. This one, I colored the off white ball purple using a Copic pen, added coordinated beads and inserted it into the bow of this card.

Heather is a delightful friend I met through blogging. I fell in love with her cute images. Don't you love the hair and that cute heart mouth? Right now, she's having a party on her blog. She has a new store and her images are wonderfully categorized - what a fantastic new store! You'll see a bunch of Angel Cakes (above)...she's such a cutie.

I added Stampin' Up!'s Crystal Effects to the balloons to give it that sort of "mylar" look and stickles to the wings. I used my MS border punch to add a little life to those dull purple card stock squares. The gingham ribbon gives the polka dotted paper just a little life and the bling adds depth with the circles. A simple and cute little card, I'd say.

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week y'all.

Happy Crafting! :~)

Really cute card Terry. I love you you tied the different shades of purples all together, and the layout is awesome too. Your Copic coloring is stunning too. ~Diane
