Guest Designing For Lexi’s Creations!

This week I am lucky to be the Guest Design Team member for Lexi's Creations and the challenge is “Sparkle and Shine”.  I was fortunate to be given  “Elaina” to use on my card.  The image is from Fairy Dust Crafts


Wow, I can’t believe how well the glitter shows up in this picture!  That never happens for me….lol!  I colored the image with Copics and used a Gold metallic gel pen for the dust and then added lots of ‘stardust’ stickles to give the sparkle and shine.  Then I used pink and turquoise chalk blended to make a background.  I used a corner punch to round off the edges of the card and the layers under the card.  Lots of dies used on this card.  The heart die is by Simon Says Stamps, the doily is a Cheery Lynn die, the butterfly is my brand new die by Memory Box and the corner dies are by Cuttlebug.  They are one of the first dies I bought.  Had them for years!!  I also added pink gems on the doily, just for a bit more shine!  The designer papers are leftovers from previous cards. 

So glad you stopped by and don’t forget to check out all the other DT cards, you won’t be disappointed!
