SC268: Shopping Diva

Good morning! Its a beautiful Sunday here in NC! Starting to feel like I actually live in the South. So, I had a bit of stamping time last night while Michael played on the Xbox. The day was spent driving kids to and from so a break was nice!

But, on the kids note I did get a call that Rachael's Math Counts team placed 2nd in the Regional competition yesterday! WooHoo! State Competition here we come!

Did you notice I added a few blinkies? I was having problems rearranging my gadgets and I thought it was Blogger. No. It was using Chrome as my browser. Firefox is better. Go figure.

OK, but enough of kids and tech talk. Back to the stamping, right? Well, one of the blinkies I added is a "Pixie Dust Challenge Star". I won the challenge last week at The Pixie Dust Challenge blog with my pink/black/red/white card which you can see HERE! Cool!

So, I won a free image and I chose "Shopping Diva" from Pixie Dust Studio. She even comes with her own little "Princess Pup" bonus image! Here she is a bit more close up:
I think I should have left well enough alone when I added the Glimmer Mist at the end, it made her a bit fuzzy for the photo. She was supposed to appear glitzy...which she does IRL, but the photos don't take well of Glimmer Mist and leave the crispness of the image in tack. Oh, well. Next time I will snap the photo, and THEN glimmer the card!

I used the sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers as the layout for the card. The sentiment is from an adorable set by Unity that has been very lonely for a long time. The rest of the supplies are listed below for those interested. The copics I used are also pictured below.
Well, thats it for now, but I am scheduling a post for you tomorrow since I won't have time to get one up then. As always thanks for stopping by and thanks for all the lovely comments!
