I Like Boys That Sparkle ;)

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday! Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC241!! This sketch was PERFECT for my new Edward stamp from The Greeting Farm! My friend Dina and I both ordered him and he came yesterday! I was SO excited to go to work today and get him from her!!!

I started by stamping my Edward (sigh!) in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and I colored him with Copic Markers. His face and hands have three coats of Candelight Shimmerz on them...cause he does sparkle! (I totally need to give props to Dina who suggested that he sparkle! Awesome call Dinsie!!).

For some reason, I always think of Red/Black/White for Twilight cards, and that is what I went with here. My Real Red panels were stamped in Real Red Ink with the swirl stamp from Fictionally Inspired by Artful Inkables, and then run through the Cuttlebug with the Texturz Background from SU!/Sizzix. I then used a Sponge Dauber with some more Real Red Ink to make the pattern pop a bit.

The sentiment, "If I could ream at all, it would be about you", is also from the Fictionally Inspired set from Artful Inkables, as is the "Edward" stamp!! I added paper piercing all around my super sparkly boyfriend (giggle) and finished off my card with two Black Vintage Brads in opposite corners!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! I have been working on some Verve Sketches for their Anni-Verve-Sary coming up, so I will most likely be back in a bit with those :)
