Hello My crafty friends!!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. This weekend has gone by so fast! I have to say thank you to everyone who decided to join my 1st blogaversary blog hop yesterday. We had so much fun! If you didn't get a chance to do the hop and would like to, Click Here. I have a huge giveaway that you do not want to miss out on!
Today I want to share a card with you that I did this weekend. I used a digi from Whimsy Stamps called LuLu. Is she not the cutest thing?? I colored her in using my copics and cut her out using one of my spellbinders scalloped circle dies. I inked the edges of the die with tea dye distress ink and added some stickles to the flower and her eyes for some sparkle.

I used cardstock by Papertrey Ink and Bazzill. I embossed both pieces of cardstock using my cuttlebug little flowers embossing folder and ran them through my ebosser. On the black front layer, I rubbed some white ink over the embossed flowers to make it look like a chalkboard effect.
The sentiment that I used, "Sweet thoughts of you" came with this digital beauty. I just love this set! The sentiment was printed out and inked up with tea dye distress ink and was  adhered on some patterned paper that I had left over from another project, the paper is from Colorbok.
To finish the card off, I added some "Navy" liquid pearls to the embossed flowers and to the inside frame around LuLu to add some cute bling. I like this color because it brings out her jeans. =)
I then added a navy blue button from October Afternoon and wrapped some cord through it, added some trims that I had in my stash from Webster's Pages and that would be it! Easy Peasy!
I would like to add this card into the following challenges,
Well that is my card for today.
