Fall Birthday Card and A Winner





I have a friend having a birthday this month and I wanted to  make a card similar to what I thought she would make. Well, that is quite impossible. If you know Carol at Chocolate Crafts and Bears, Oh My, then you know that is quite a big job. Wow! Can she ever make a super card and so many other crafty things. Take a look. I took my idea from this card of Carol's because I had an image a bit like hers, also a punch like hers.
 
Carol likes a lot of sparkle and gemstones on her cards so I tried to do that, too. I colored my image with Copics and sponged around it. My recipe is below.
 
NOW, it is time to announce the winner of my blog candy. Thanks to everyone who joined in  and the winner is ..............................

I'm heading back into the working world tomorrow. They have me scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 to 5. I'll probably be one tired crafter Friday...lol. We are actually setting up the store so I'm excited about that.
