A bit of Whimsy and Stars


 This week is just flying by! I've got this little cutie, Searching, from Mabelle RO at Whimsy and Stars to show you today. I love the cute images she draws and the fab and funky clothes (I'd love to find a little dress like this for Lilah).  Stay tuned Mabelle has a big new release coming soon, and I was lucky enough to get a peek at what she has in the works, and it is great stuff!

I used The Corrosive Challenge Blog challenge 111 sketch for this. The sentiment I lifted from Steven Tyler on American Idol. He told a contestant, "You don't look a day over fabulous" and immediately I thought of this image.


After I photographed the card originally I realized I forgot the crystal effects, so back to the desk I went. So I took a little close up to show the "glass" in her looking glass.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Card Recipe: 
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI ssw, New Leaf, Melon Berry, MM dsp
Embellishments: copics, nesties, stickles, crystal effects, PTI ribbon and button, cuttlebug embossing folder

Hey!! I wish I did not look a day over fabulous - at your age, that's easy to say. Love the way you have done the magnifying glass - very authentic!!
