Squeakin' in with ODBDSLN29


So... I'm squeakin' in with my card for ODBDSLN29, to have some sparkle on my card.   I have a tendency to do that far too often. I tell myself with each new challenge that I'm going to get my project done right away, but something always comes up.   Anyway, I did finally get something done.  I used my brand spankin' new set of Spellbinders Lacey Squares dies.  I got them from Flowers to Flourishes, a really cool website that posts one deal per day and you can pretty much always get the product at about 30% to 50% off retail.  Shipping is generally only $4.99, which is another plus.  Recently they started selling the new Spellbinders dies for $13.99 even with shipping the cost for a set still comes in well under alot of other retailers.   Check'em out..

In an effort to get better at coloring with my Copics, I got them out to color the flowers and butterfly. I really like how the flowers turned out.   My bit of sparkle comes from Diamond Stickles applied to the center of the flower and to the body of the butterfly. 

Thanks for taking a peek.... hope your day is going well!   So far so good for me!  On another note, today's post is my 100th!!  Can't believe I have reached that many posts in just the 4 months that I have been bloggin!  Yikes!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & spring rain; Stamps:  ODBD Don't Worry; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Spellbinders Lacey Square dies; Cuttlebug; Rnager Diamond  Stickles
