Live in the Moment

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous long weekend!  I'm home alone today as Matthew still has to work due to being in crunch mode for the end of his project...but I'll survive...I hope :)

Today starts a new challenge at Digi Makeover and it's Pearls and Lace!  I love using these two embellishments together, they are so elegant.  Of course, I have hardly any lace, and most of my "pearls" are now made with liquid pearls...but I still love the combo!
I used the super sweet Marissa Fairy on my card today.  She just looked so free spirited, dancing away.  I just loved that.  She's colored in with my pencils and I added glitter to her wings and some Wink of Stella to the stars and shoes of her outfit.

I used some Flamingo liquid pearls to add some swirls next to the image and in the corner...but I'm not too happy with how they turned out.  I've been wanting to come up with some sort of swirl template, but haven't taken the time to do it...and now I see that I really need one if I'm going to try and add swirls to my cards.

But the card is simple and cute, so I love it :)

Stop by and join in the fun!!  And be sure to check out the rest of the makeup artists fabulous creations...they will blow you away!
