NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION - SNEAK PEEK #3

GOOD MORNING!!


I am so excited today is my day to show you a beautiful image GATHERING LOVE by Carmen Medlin for SCACD. Doesn't she have a beautiful face? This collection is The NATURAL BEAUTY COLLECTION. If you missed the first 2 days of Sneak Peeks, please scroll down and visit their blogs.

The DP was so perfect for this image. I did put a little Stickles in the center of the flowers. Since the DP was so busy I really couldn't use any embellishments or it took away from the card. I used a MS punch for the corners and added some pretty little pearls. The image is colored with Copics with glaze on the heart stems, as well, as on the vines on her dress. I suppose I got a little carried away again with the Stickles, but the card is so sparkly and pretty. There is also Stickles on the flowers of her dress and the hearts.

Tomorrow will be Sneak Peek #4 so please check back.

Also, there is BLOG CANDY. Please check the store blog, FOLLOW YOUR HEART, for the details.

Please leave a comment. This is one of the requirements for winning the Blog Candy.

You will have 5 chances to win, but you must leave a comment on the designer's blog who is presenting the sneak peek. So if you haven't left a comment on Elaine's (sneak peek #1) and Lori's (sneak Peek #2) blog, please do so. Only one comment per person on each sneak peek post.

Be sure to check out the Blog Hop on Friday, May 20th as there are 2 stamps not being previewed which will just blow you away. I have a feeling this collection is going to go fast.

See you Friday!!

Thank You and Have a wonderful week!

HUGS,
