Hambo Hoedown

Well, I made it back from up north just in time for another Hoedown. Thank you everyone for the well wishes.

This week we are honoring special women in our lives. This card has to have lace and flowers on it to be able to be entered into the challenge. This is right up my alley. I love anything that glitters, has lace or flowers. Although this took me a while, I was having trouble with colors. I had way to much pink.

On this card I used a new die called High Tea Party Doily. It is from My Favorite Things. I love these new intricate dies. I have several and this is one of my favorites. The image was printed on Mohawk Bright White cover paper. I have really good luck with Copics on this type of paper. The flowers are from my stash and same with the designer paper. I punched the butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch and used Stickles to give them a little bling. I used oval Nesties to cut out the images. Added a few pearls and I was done. Thanks for coming to see my card. Hope you participate in the challenge and as Martha would say (I think she says this. lol) "Its a fun thing" or wait maybe that was "Its a good thing" Sorry Martha I can't remember.
