Blonde and Blue For Karen!

Here is a card I have made for my friend Karen for her Birthday on Sunday. She loves blue so I have done a blue theme with a bit of brown for contrast. My very sweet stamp is from the "Miss Anya Collection" by The Greeting Farm; isn't she so pretty and sweet? I have coloured her with copics and added some glossy accents (glossy accents is yet another craft item I am obsessed with!). I have used glitter core-dinations paper in the background and embossed it with my cuttlebug. I love core-dinations paper, and their glitter paper is so sparkly! I have embossed my sentiment with Zing embossing powder in Copper glitter finish. My flowers and leaves are from Hooked on Craft and I could not resist spritzing them with a dash of Glimmer Mist (yes I am still obsessed with Glimmer Mist!) in bubbles, peacock, bronze, and dazzling diamonds. My leaves were originally white but I made them two-toned by giving them a spray of Glimmer Mist as well. The paper I used behind my Anya stamp is.....yes, you guessed it, glimmer misted too! I also added a touch of Stickles to my flowers in cinnamon, copper, waterfall and crystal for added sparkle!

Happy Birthday Karen!
