Hidden Winner Announced!!!

Hello my lovely friends! Can I just say that you are WONDERFUL? You really are! I want you to hear me when I say this and accept the love I give, which you deserve :) I appreciate each and every one of you ♥

Today's card is a real beauty... just like you! This image by Victoria Case for SCACD is DEFINITELY one of my favorites. I keep looking at her lol! She is called Victoria Bonita and is dedicated to Susana's BFF and creator of this sweetie, Victoria Case :) Whether one is physically beautiful or not, everyone is beautiful in their own way... what matters most is what's in the heart. God says, "The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7

Ooooohhhhh... don't you just love her? She's colored with my fave copics, of course: Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Blouse/lips/flower petals - RV11 RV10 RV00; Flower center/leaves - B05 B02 B01 B00 B000; Leaves - G28 G24 G20. Do you like the 'baby's breath' I created with my Cream Paper Pen? I LOVE my paper pens!!! The beautiful pink pearls around the scallop inset are from my Rose Paper Pen : ) See how quick and easy it is to make any size? Super convenient! I don't think the camera picked up the beautiful shine of her eyes which I created using Diamond Glaze. I love how this product really brings out the beauty!

LinkThe small pink rhinestones were added in threes (they come in a row, so I just cut them in threes...already spaced perfectly!) You can see similar rhinestones in rows Here. The larger pearls and Kaisercraft Rhinestones at the bottom balances things and adds that vintage touch as does the mini rose!

I tried here to show you the dimension of this card. After I chose the dp (which I had in my scrap file - I need to use more of my scraps!!!) I used a large scalloped oval die to cut out the center (save the scalloped oval for another project). I did the same with the black cs and large oval die cut. Now I have a mat to fit the frame I made with the dp. See how nice my 'photo' fits in the matted frame? I probably could have used the largest size of the small oval and scalloped oval, but I think this still works :)

The sentiment is an epoxy sticker by Heidi Grace which I backed with the pink and cream paper. Oh, one more thing you might like to know... I used RV000 to color in the scallops (under the pink pearls) so it matches - yippppeeeeee!
