One Of A Kind

Hey Everybody,

Hope you all are keeping snug and warm.'s cold outside here this morning.... 36 degrees!  Now that may not be a big deal for some folks, but I'm in Florida.  We usually do best at 70 or higher. :)

So on with my card....

One Of A Kind

I may not be getting better, but I'm getting a little quicker.  I've been wanting to make a twisted easel card, and this one just kind of came together...I love it when that happens.

The image is called Deevonne by Hannah Lynn, at Crafts and Me.  My good friend Dana of Dana's Inspirations did a fabulous tutorial using Prisma Pencils (using the Forever Rose Image from Crafts and Me), and although I colored my image with my ProMarkers I was still able to learn so much from watching her.  She also has other tutorials that are a MUST see.

The beads and wire flowers were inspired by Leanne of LuvLee Scrappin.  I actually found her on YouTube.  You can find her tutorial here, but I assure you, you'll find many more that you'll just love!  The beads were bought at Hobby Lobby, and like a nummy - I threw away the package before I looked to see who they were by.  The gold leaves are from some sequin that I got at my local thrift store.

Other mediums used:

Paper; Cream color is from my stash, BP, pink frame and sentiment BP/ are from DCWV, called The Preppy Princess Stack (one of my selections from Michael's 50% off sale).  Brown and dark tan papers are also from my stash.

Dies; Martha Stewart border punch, Nestibilities (picture frame), and scallop/type scissors for the sentiment.

Ribbon; White from my stash, that I colored with my PM.

Glitter; Used on the little star on her shoulder, came from my local thrift store.

Sentiment was made in Paint Shop Pro.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.  Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year!
