I'm Back!

I'm back even though I never went away...just no time to post. This is such a busy time...Graduation. My youngest son is graduating from grade 12 and this is all what life is about. Last week all my time was spent getting ready for the grad party we had on Sunday. More than 7o people came for a pool party barbecue and we had a fantastic time. It was so great seeing grads with their friends and their families. We see the kids all the time but to also have their parents here as special. It was the greatest way to celebrate their graduating. I think the highlight was the chocolate fountain! If you haven't tried one please do...such great fun and soooo tasty. I took my first dip and had chocolate on my shirt for the rest of the day. But enough on the party, here is my card for Megastamper Challenge.
Bea has this great sketch to use and this is the card I ended up with. I used scraps of paper, some from SU and others from My Mind's Eye.
These two stamps are from the WOJ Summer set and they are so wonderful. I colored them with markers and used Solar Gold Twinkling H2Os to color the apples and trim on the dress. I also used the yellow spica pen on her hair...just enough sparkles to make the card look alive. I used my ticket corner punch from SU and then my Martha Stewart lace punch to create the corner detail.

I used my bow easy to make the bow from my silk ribbon from No Time To Stamp. I used three layers to create the flower. The leaf is from some embellishments I received from a friend. I love the way it turned out.

I did the same corner detail on the inside and used 3 separate spellbinder dies on the inside. I used some frayed burlap distress ink to distress the edges and show the embossing on the butterfly and the dragon fly.
I hope you had time to read this very long post. I will be posting another card later. Have a wonderful day.
