I'm just getting in under the wire to play along with STAMPlorations Bloomdala Bliss linky party!  I was this gorgeous image, and HAD to play along.  I mean, it's gorgeous!!
The hardest part of creating this card was deciding what color combo I wanted to use to color the image.  I finally decided on purples and aquas; such a pretty color combo.  I started with the lightest shades, worked up to the darker shades and moved back down to the lighter shades.  I love how it turned out!  I die cut the word "gorgeous" and stamped "Hello" to finish the sentiment.  And finished everything off with a few irridescent purple rhinestones.  I layered the panel on a dark purple card stock base.
Love, love, love how this turned out!!

Heather, I love love love this too! Just saw it won over at Double D, so go over and enjoy! You nailed it - what color combo to use! Mine is still not colored because of that and I missed entering but hey, I'll decide and color one day. Yours is now one of my samples saved in my Stamplorations computer folder, your choices were FAB as well as your coloring skillz and the sentiment is great. xoxo
