Card no. 113 - You make my World that much brighter!

Oh, my! What a fantastic weekend! We had a fabulous turnout at the benefit and we raised a wonderful amount for our Foundation. An absolutely AMAZING group of people, artists, doctors, survivors, entertainers came and (I think) everyone had great time!
My sets of cards got a new home and I hope they will make someone's day when received.

Here goes my new card ...

I used the suuuuper cute Lili of the Valley image - Maisie Sitting Pretty and a butterfly from Hero Arts - Antique Engravings. I used 3D technique, that I adore so much - and learned it from Mariska at Sending you a Little Smile. Such a talented lady!

The Detail

Cardstock is from JoAnn, the DP is one of my all time favorite, My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose. I sewed the edges, added rhinestones, lacy ribbon from Archiver's, Prima Flowers and pearly springs.
The Spellbinders I used were Labels Seventeen. 
Pretty easy. I think what took me the longest was the image :) that I colored with my Copics, ProMarkers and ShinHan markers. I also added Stickles (StarDust & Diamond).

The Front View

I hope you're enjoying this fall. It has finally cooled off here in Phoenix.
I have been super busy - I've also got a new FABULOUS job (that I am super exited about) and still keeping my old one. Of course, I am home with my girls (whenever I can) and we craft like there is no tomorrow :) My hubby is working his tushie off at the hospital, but I know he's not-so-secretly loving it.

I have many more projects to come - I have so many ideas, just not enough time (or energy - by the end of the day) to make them happen.
