Lanore's Birthday

I made this card primarily because I wanted to make a special card for my cousin's birthday Granted, I have plenty of cards on hand that I could have just sent, but my cousin is one of my closest friends. I haven't seen her in 26 years and we recently found each other again and picked up like we never missed a beat.

I saw Pricilla's midnite madness challenge, and decided to use that as my layout for Lanore's card.

I used pink pirouette as my base. I used last years Valentines DSP from SU as my designer paper. I mounted my image on rich razzleberry. I stamped the Elements of Style in Rich Razzleberry, then colored it in using pretty in pink, regal rose, mellow moss and always artichoke. I went over key areas with glitter gel pen. I then added medium pink brads to the top, grabbed a glue pen, then added dazzling diamonds to the brads.

I really tried to make this card special for my cousin. I hope she likes it.

This is beautiful, Dara. One of my favorite SU stamp sets. You have colored it so beautifully, and the added glitter is a perfect touch. I'm sure your cousin will love it! Nicely done.
Thank you so much for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.
