Never Stop Sparkling

What a week!
Schmitzy is healing, but his entire side feels like leather.  My DH describes it as having a shingle (as in roofing) attached to his side and it is beginning to pull away from the decking.  I managed to break my 2nd toe yesterday and got a migraine on top of that.  Today was  back to "normal" and I went to work, but forgot my phone.  I knew I should have gone back for it because one of the women that works with me is very pregnant and I just knew something would happen because I left it home.  And it did - she was sent to L&D after her doctor's appointment, but ended up going back home.  So baby Sofia is not quite ready to make an appearance yet!

I have a card I made a few days ago to share tonight.   

This is a Stamping Bella image colored with Copics & Spicas.  I sprinkled Swarovski crystals on her accessories as well as the Memory Box die cut.  I used the sketch at Sketch Saturday, but too late to enter it in the challenge.
I paper-pieced her dress and scarf using My Mind's Eye dp.  Ribbon is from Michaels.  I punched the sentiment with an SU! punch and the orange oval with an EK punch.

I am entering the following challenges:

Scrap It Girl - bling, glitter, shine and sparkles
Use it Tuesday - Make it Sparkle (old rhinestone stash, old DP, old ribbon)
Charisma Cardz - at least 2 punches

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to get back in my art room tomorrow or Saturday.
