You can tell how old this is cause my maiden name is in the watermark :) This was one of the first cards I did using copics! This was over a year ago so it is hard for me to name the other special stuff used!

I love daisyboardabella!!! She is fierce :) I also had some basic grey eskimo kisses still in my stash and I love that Wild wasabi matches perfect. For the bling I added martha stewert snow glitter under her boots and dew drops in the corners.
I feel like a contestant on American Idol....."This means the world to me and this is my dream" and I am holding up 2 fingers and Ryan is telling everyone to call to vote for me! :) Stay tuned for more bella goodness!!! I am in a goofy mood as I am posting this so excuse the rambling!
This image is available over at 7 kids college fund. My dots is the Swiss dot cuttlebug folder on the background and the pink is just about everywhere. I also used pearl dots! And some pretty pink shimmerz on her dress and flowers. I love Anya because she is SO much fun to color. I colored her with my copics!

I used make a splash Sophia! I am LOVING using my sewing machine on my cards. I received it as a gift from my mom last Christmas and I NEVER have sewed before! So I am learning and my stitches are getting straighter!!! So Jodi over on Confessions of a ribbon addict has this great Q&A about sewing on cards. She recommends this thread that is XP super thick and it is sold at Joann's. Well I have thread from Wal-mart and I was Leary if there really was a difference. OMG their is! if you look closely at the card you will notice I actually made this card in pieces over a few days. the larger square (card base) was stitched with my wal-mart thread and the circle and smaller thread was stitched with my new super thick thread.....can you see how much brighter and thicker it looks!

I have been dieing to make a black and yellow card since I saw daffodil delight. Yellow and Black are REALLY in right now! this was soooo much fun to make! I used the new stampin up daffodil delight and the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. I used copics to color and shimmerz for the dresses and to paint the white primas the shimmery coal color and put clear dew drops in the flower center.
