Mirror Mirror On The Wall...

Hi Everyone!
This week's challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenges is to make a card or project :
For Mom
I have chosen this gorgeous paper from K&Co to compliment the freebie image from TLC. Gotta love Paulette and friends ! She keeps coming up with  the most awesome stuff, if you don't 
follow her, you should!
But the sentiments here on this card are my own and they're pretty cool too, IMHO. lol I simply created them on the computer with various fonts.


OK!
 So the flowers and butterflies you're 
seeing are K&Co


Below you see the Nesties framing my image. What would the world do without Nesties, by the way? Would we still make cards? Did crafting (as we know it) exist before Nesties?
Wonderful invention!


Lots of bling going on here...I just know 
you want a closer look so I'll oblige. :-)
I colored the image with Prismacolors and 
paper pieced the dresses.


A few close ups:
Inside

I just love these colors together...
 Inside- Top
The flowers in the picture below are a combination of Marvy punches and Recollection brand flowers.
Theres a nestie again....See they pop up everywhere!
Inside-Bottom


So there's my project! Now its time to see yours.
You have a whole week to show us your stuff! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Hello Stacey! This creation blows me away, with all of the details you put into it. I thought I recognized some K & Co. stuff; love their things!! I like your computer-generated sentiment, too. :)

I agree with you about Nestabilities...what would we do without them? Cardmaking wouldn't quite be the same.

Hey, thank you for your comments and sharing about my daughter's eating disorder. I really appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and sharing of your own experience. I just wanted you to know that, Stacey! Big hugs to you. :)
