Love Always

Hi all! I have a new color combo to share thanks to the inspiration photo challenge over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog!  I used 'Uptown Angel' from Kenny K for my lovely image. I colored her up with yellow, purple and grey copics.  The paper is My Minds Eye Breeze 6x6.

The bling is Kaisercraft and I used some Liquid Pearls on the sentiment. Of course the flowers are Wild Orchid Craft roses which I distressed with Milled Lavender and Wild Honey (the closest thing to yellow) Distress Inks and then sprayed them with a mini mister filled with water, glossy accents and Pearl-Ex. The sparkle looks real nice in person!
I almost had a fit trying to get the bling down. Maybe there is an easier way, but I took it all off the packaging and it all tangled up and became a bling ball.  I had to untangle what I could, cut some and reassemble. It was a hot mess. Thankfully I took a picture of it before, so I was able to reconstruct what and where things were supposed to go. Oh, card drama:)

I was really worried about the color combo, but I like it all put together!
I hope you all like it, too! And, please leave a comment. I love reading them all =)
