I'm going to Florida this weekend... Not that it's any warmer than here in Georgia! Boy, the cold air has really sank deep into the South! My hubby and I are going to Disney for a few days. We bought a season pass the last time we were there and he has a few days off so we've decided to head down there for some fun. Disney is where we went on our honeymoon and we've loved it ever since.

I'm uploading a card that I made this past Fall. The stamp I used is from B Line Designs. I stamped the image onto black velvet DP by misting the stamp with water prior to using it. I then placed the paper face down onto the stamp and misted the back of the DP with water. I used my iron at a low setting to heat set the image. I cut out the bodice and stand from the black velvet. The paper that I used for the skirt and background was handmade using Glimmer Mists. The colors I used were Pinecone, Candy Apple Red and Forest Green. The word BEAUTY was individually stamped with Party Ink, Uppercase Wood Stamps by The Paper Studio. I used a fine point black pen to outline each letter. I matted the dress on a green piece of CS and used my 18 ct. Gold Leafing Pen from Krylon to make the gold edge around the CS. I LOVE that pen!!! I bought my ribbon from Hobby Lobby and used small pearl embellishments for the necklace. I hope you enjoy!
