My Superman - Sweet, Strong & Sparkly!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!

Here is my card for today's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC91! I LOVE this sketch and as soon as I saw it, I knew just want I wanted to do!

Now, before I tell you about my card, I have to tell you what I was thinking about the entire time I was making it! I kept giggling and thinking of the beginining of New Moon when Bella dreams about her Gran. I love when she says:

"Well Gran, you might have noticed that my boyfriend glitters. It's just something he does in the sun. Don't worry about it..."

That's where my inspiration comes from today! I wanted to represent Edward as the "vampire", sparkly skin & all!!

I started by stamping this UBER adorable Vampire Cuppie from Trick or Sweet from Taylored Expressions (clearly not just a Halloween set, especially for us vampire obsessed stampers!), in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I then cut him out with Classic Circle Nestabilities, and using my Copic Mutlitliner, doodled a pattern around the edge of the circle.

I used this DARLING sentiment from Trick or Sweet II, also from Taylored Expressions, which reads "My Superman - sweet and strong!" and then, again with my trusty Copic Multiner, I added "(and sparkly)" to the sentiment!! (grin!)

The patterned paper is the retired Rockabilly from SU!, which I seem to gravitate towards when making Twilight must be the colors. I think I shall refer to this paper as my Twilight paper from here on, I just have to find some MORE of it :D

I finished off my card with some ribbon from my stash as well as some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, which I totally ADORE! Oh, and of course, my Edward Cuppie got a coat of Candle Light Shimmerz, so that he really does sparkle!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! Only 6 days to go!!
