I'm Sorry ...

Hello friends.  Today is Thursday so that means we have a new challenge over at the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog.

I used Makeup Brush on my card and colored it with copics and colored pencils.  I stitched all my papers and used my nestabilities to cut out my image.  I applied some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the powder in the compact to give it just a hint of sparkle.  Then I added lots of StarDust stickles to the brush handle and the compact.  I used more of my MME Stella and Rose paper (I absolutely love these new papers) and added a few matching buttons.  I added a little bow and tied on a tag that I punched out with my Martha Stewart tag punch.

I finished the inside of my card with Nail Polish, which was also colored with copics and colored pencils.  I added some StarDust Stickles to the nail polish and added Glossy Accents to the brush handle.  My sentiment is computer-generated.  I used a Fiskars punch for the border.

Here's the latest Meljen's Designs release.  You can find these cute images and all the Meljen's Designs over at Whimsy Stamps.  Please be sure to stop by the Meljen's Designs Challenges and Inspiration Blog to see what the other super-talented DT have created this week.  I hope you have time to play along in our challenge this week.
