Hello there!! Today I have a card made with another gorgeous Aurora Wings image, Flower Ballerina .  I colored her with my Prismacolors, and when everything kept going well, my stress at screwing it up increased!! The detail in this beauty was almost too much for my old eyes! I managed to get it done, though, and set to assembling a card.  I thought the coloring was bad…..I can’t remember ever having so many issues putting a card together!! The papers I was intending on using just clashed terribly with the image colors, the dies I was going to use are lost in the mail somewhere, I didn’t have the flowers I wanted to use anymore…..blah blah.  I buckled down and got to work.  I die cut some sheer fabric out of a basic flower shaped die then heated the edges with my gun until they started to twist and curl….a bit of pink was added to the centers before I layered the flower shapes up with some pearl stamens.  I decided to go with some solid card stock instead of messing with the print that didn’t match, and added a few strips of cheesecloth, some pearls and pearl sprays.  Instead of matting the image, I punched one edge to bring some of the darker pink into the scheme of things.  I didn’t have a stamp for the sentiment I wanted, so I used 2.  I had to mask off some of the words, to leave the word “with”…..done that lots of times, what could be the problem???  Well, dummy me didn’t mask off the edge above and below the word, so right when I had everything all figured out, I had these 2 purple lines that weren’t supposed to be there!!! AAAARRRGGGHH!!  Love = heart :)  and some correction tape on the other boo boo.  I was glad to be finished, and extremely pleased with how it turned out, especially with all the issues I had.  I really think the finished product does justice to the beautiful image, and I hope the special lady who receives it loves it :)
