Hey, all!  I'm back today with a sample I created for The Hen House Paperie, the stamping/scrapbooking store I work at in Albuquerque, NM.  This place is a little slice of heaven, I tell ya.  I picked up this Stampingbella image (Uptown Girls Brigitte the bride) and some My Mind's Eye papers (Lost and Found 3) in the shop and whipped up this card yesterday.  Okay, it took me one whole day to color it and another day to put it together, but I'm a slow crafter.  In fact, tortoises tell me to hurry up!  LOL!  But they have a hard time holding the Copics, so at least I have that over them ;D

I'll keep this short.  This is a rather large image and since I added a background effect, it takes up most of the real estate on the card.  I did manage to layer some of the DPs together and cut some glittery elements from another sheet to add some interest, but it was a bit challenging to squeeze in those details.    Of course, there's ALWAYS room for bling!  

I better scoot!  Time to go to work ;D  Until next time, stay crafty!
