This card came together in half a snap. I masked off sections of the clouds and sponged pink and blue inks. I sprinkled gold glitter on one segment of each cloud, and made it rain gold drops. The sentiment (from Studio Calico) is perfect, and gold-heat-embossed.
I mounted everything onto a journaling card die, and then onto a polka dot notecard. I love those new lawn fawn notecards!
But here's the question: does it bother anyone else (or just me) that the golds are all a bit different in their tones? bah. I always notice these little things, mostly when I'm done editing the photos, and it bothers me. They have a word for that, my husband says... ha.
I really love everything else about this card.

Elena! Wonderful job with the clouds and the glitter--I adore how you tied it all together! I really need this sentiment...it is my slogan! Do you have a link to where I can find it at SC?
