CLP with Lily of the Valley and Winner!!!

Well, the weekend is finally here... whew!  Has it been a whirlwind for you too?  I have so many unfinished projects going that sometimes I don't know what to do first!  I know, I know... prioritize!  It really does help.  Today I thought that I would finish painting the baseboards in my.... drum roll pleeease... new craft room!!!  I haven't even begun that yet lol.  I HAVE to finish it before Tuesday though cuz the new floor will be installed then!

OK  OK... if you've read this far (hee hee) you are getting impatient to know who the winner of my LOADS of Ribbon and more Blog Candy is...

Congratulations goes to:

That's YOU, Gloria Westerman.  YAY!!!  Woot Woot!!!
Please send me an email to let me know where to send your stash : )
If I don't hear from you in the next 72 hours, I'll have to draw another name.

As always... I feel bad for everyone who DIDN'T win!  I know firsthand the excitement checking to see who won... and then... AWWWWW poop!!!  Oh well, maybe next time lol.  To encourage you, there really WILL be a next time - and that's a promise!

So where has my prioritizing got me?  Well, even though it's a couple of days late (I had a note from my sister who took me to Hawaii) I had SO MUCH FUN creating this card for Crafting Life's Pieces Sketch Challenge #40!

This is the FABULOUS sketch by Chelsea, of course!

Can you believe that this is the FIRST Lily of the Valley image I've used?  It's called 'On the Way' which I believe is a NEW RELEASE for Christmas : )  Thank you so much for letting us play with these beauties, Bev!!!  You are a sweetie!

Of course, I used copics to color in this awesome image:  B23 B21 B00 B000; E59 E57 E55 E53 E51 E50; E35 YR21; R29 R27 R24; G14 G12 G40.  For the ultra sparkles I used Viva Decor Glitter Liner.  The pearls are Ice White Pearl Pen and that gorgeous pin can be found *Here.*  It's called Antique Stick Pin by Jenni Bowlin.

Here's another one of my Pearl Rose Modeling Creme, turned metal embellishments lol!  I've used my FAVE Silver Precious Metal Paint to cover the rose color.  If you missed one of my tutorials on how to make your own embellishments using Modeling Creme or Crystal Gel, you can find it *Here.*

Oh how I LOVE Wild Orchid flowers!!!  I don't use them nearly enough... or can GET nearly enough LOL!  They are smothered with Glitter Liner which gives the edge a subtle silver, but OH SO SPARKLY finish!  DP is from the Blitzen Collection by Bo Bunny.  I love the colors in this collection.  I am just not a green and red girl, so I snatched this up fast!
