A little gem

Another week, another awesome Embellishment Challenge over at CDAC. This week's is hosted by VN Digital Art, who's asked us to use lace and rhinestones. Having just this weekend purchased some cheap-o lace, I was pretty excited. To make it even more fun, I used the sweet My Flower freebie offered for use in this challenge. My husband says she looks a bit like StarFire.

To give myself a bit more direction, I used Curtain Call Color Challenge Act 69: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla & Real Red. This was a fairly challenging combo, but it allowed me to use two of my favorite papers: the red-and-white flower pattern, and the tiny-heart pre-embossed, off-white paper. For the "crumb cake" backgrounds on the front, I painted Cinnamon Stickles onto a kraft-colored cardstock. For the sentiment, I once again turned to You make my life sparkle by TLC Creations.

I highly recommend checking out the other entries to both of these challenges; they are beyond gorgeous!
