Life is Better When It Sparkles

 Less than forty-eight hours from now 
I will be in the car with Margaret,
 arriving at her home after flying non-stop into Denver!   
I can hardly wait!  
Stamp stores and art room time, 
what more could a girl want for other than some Starbucks and B&N time???!!!

I have a darling card to share with you tonight.  This image reminds me of Margaret's youngest, Claudia.

This is a Pink Cat Studio image that was one of my first stamp purchases.  It's from a set called Dress-Up Lily.  It comes with the girl and lots of little accessories.  I chose to use the magic wand, popped out with 3M foam tape, for this card.  The image is colored with Copics and Spicas and cut out with an oval nestie.  The sentiment is from Verve (back when it was called Verve Visual) and is stamped with Encore Gold Metallic, with a row of rhinestones beneath, cut out with Spellbinders Labels #4.   The border is from a Martha Stewart punch.  The flagtails are custom.  The DP is Colorbok that I picked up at Wal-Mart the other day and cs is DCWV.   I used the sketch at The Sweet Stop and I really like this one!

I am also entering the following challenges:

Scrap It Girl - use your dies
Creative Corner - girly girl
Aud Sentiments - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!
Not sure if you get me or Margaret tomorrow. 
Come back and be surprised!
