Hello everyone and a Happy Sunday to you all! Sorry I've been MIA for the past few days but it's been crazy busy here at the Dean household! I had a Copic Class to teach, kid's appointments, finishing the next issue of the craft magazine and Dirty Girl Projects--YIKES! My daughter also had her semi-formal 8th grade dance on Friday night (see slideshow pics below)--she looked so grown up and pretty. She got her hair done at the salon to look like Lauren Conrad's (star from The Hills--see here) and I think she's a young dead-ringer for Lauren if I do say so myself. I loved her dress, it was perfect and age appropriate for her! She had a BLAST and then had a sleepover at a friend's with 4 other girls, went to a pool party yesterday and then a graduation party that night. Her social calendar is hopping, LOL! I still find it so hard to believe that she graduates middle school on Thursday evening and will be off to high school in the fall. It feels like she just graduated from elementary school---all in a blink of an eye I tell ya! And my son--oh my gosh he's now the same height as me, when the heck did that happen? LOL--I don't like it one bit--he'll always be the baby to me :)
Anywho, I have a busy week ahead as well---working on projects for while I'm on vacation, checking homework in the Copic classrooms and then my mom is visiting on Thursday thru the weekend to see Alexa graduate. I'm hoping to drag her around for some "junkin' & antiquin'"--I'm on the lookout for some goodies, LOL! Then next week I'm off to South Carolina--I cannot wait!!

For this card I just used white cardstock and shimmery silver cardstock from Papertrey Ink. There are many layers on this card--8 or 9 I think which brings in the dimension. For texture I used a brand new Tim Holtz embossing folder (regal flourishes) which I just love! I used SB nestabilities (Labels 8) to cut out the 2 elegant shapes behind Tilda--I traced the larger one with a silver Spica marker and the smaller one got outlined with stardust Stickles. One of the edges of the white cs on the card also got outlined in the Stickles as well. I wrapped the middle with silver ribbon, I left off the bow because it would've looked too busy.
This lil' beauty is colored with Copics (C grays for the dress) and I added stardust Stickles to the silver parts of her dress and headband so they were super sparkly.
The flowers are a mix of white roses, white flowers (from the wedding section in Michaels) layered together. Then I snipped off sections of the white chandelier glass garden flowers (buy here) and placed them beside the flowers. I used Scor-Tape and glue dots to arrange them the way I wanted.
Just a side view to show the dimension---I used thin and thick dimensionals for different levels of dimension. I just love how this one turned out---so pretty! Hope you like it too! Would you like to win this image and a bag of beautiful ribbons & pearls? Leave me a comment and tell me "If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you did with the money?"---you can enter for this Blog Candy until Friday, June 18th!
Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here on Tuesday!
