Best Wishes

Wow, two posts in one day.  That probably won't happen very often but I did want to get this card posted today.  I actually made this card before I left for vacation but I ran out of time and didn't have a chance to post it.

I made this card using a Belles 'n Whistles image.  I pulled out some of my Memory Box Gossamer paper.  I love the small pads of Memory Box paper.  The only problem with them is that I have to force myself to use them.  Yes, I am a paper hoarder.  Love to buy all kinds of pretty paper but then for some insane reason, I'm afraid to use it cause I may run out of it.  Yea, right  --  I don't know why I'm trying to "save" it. 

I colored my image with prismacolors and gamsol and added lots of stickles to the coins and flowers.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border on the side and added some ribbon and a bow.  I used another Martha punch for the greenery behind my flowers.  I added the greenery, flowers and some pearls and my card was done.  Thanks for stopping by!
