PMS Monday Challenge: Puttin' on the Glitz!

Hi all! Happy Monday to all of you! I hope you all had a great Mother's Day! I had a nice day at home. I made breakfast for my mom (quiche!), and then later my hubby made a surf and turf dinner for all of us! It was like being at a fancy restaurant! He made twice-baked potatoes, corn on the cob, and of course the lobster tails and steaks! It was delicious and a nice day. Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to stamp, but I had to make a card for my MIL, so I cased myself and used it for my PMS Monday Challenge! The challenge this week was chosen by me and I chose to challenge everyone to use some kind of **SPARKLE** on their cards. This isn't a challenge for me because I use it all the time, but I love it so I chose this for the challenge. So here's my card:

I just love this digi stamp called A Fairy for Kaleigh. I used it for my last challenge here and just love it so I made another in different colors. I started out by chosing my dp, which is Basic Grey's Porcelain. I then matched it up with regal rose, this green Offray satin ribbon, and my copic markers. I glittered up the fairy with Star Dust Stickles and added bling to the bottom and a little one for her necklace. Isn't she just so pretty! You can read about this charity digi image here. All the proceeds (100%) are being donated back to the Freeman family.

So do you think you can bling up a card? I think you can, and we'd love to see what you do. Stop over the PMS blog and see what the DT girls have done with this challenge, then create your own. Link it to Mr. Linky so we can all see it, and if you post to SCS or another forum, please use the code PMSMC11. Also, if you upload to SCS, please put Paper Makeup Stamps in your key words because we now have a gallery there! Yeah! We are so excited about that! Thanks for stopping in today, and have a great week!

I know I'm a little late in commenting on this card, but I was perusing your blog for inspiration and I came across this card. It is sooooo beautiful! I bought this image but I haven't used it yet. Shame on me...I may just have to print it today and go to work.

Love your soft, elegant colors and coloring. This is simply stunning! Really.

Have a great weekend my friend.
