Paging Dr. Cullen...

Hi everyone! Happy Twi-Day!!!

This is the 2nd week of my Twi-Day Challenge (to myself...and you too if you want to join in!) and I realized that with all the Twilight inspired cards I have made, I have not featured our favorite vampire Dad, Carlisle!!!

My absolute FAVORITE Carlisle quote comes from New Moon when he is stitching Bella's arm and they are discussing Edwards soul:

"I look at my… son. His strength, his goodness, the brightness that shines out of him—and it only fuels that hope, that faith, more than ever. How could there not be more for one such as Edward?"
- Carlisle Cullen

That always gives me the chills!! For my card today, I used the new limited edition digi from The Greeting Farm, Dressy Daniel (aka Carlisle!) and I printed him onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers. I cut him out with Rectangle Nestabilities and keeping the nestie on the paper, sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe.

The sentiment, "Doctor's Orders: Rest, Relax, Recover" is from Doctor's Orders from Taylored Expressions! I know I would LOVE to receive a Carlisle card if I were feeling under the weather!!!

I used Basic Grey, Baja Breeze and Choice Snow White on my card, and the patterned paper is Walk In The Park from SU!. I finished off my card with some Vintage Brads and a double ribbon of Baja Breeze Striped and Basic Grey Taffetta. I ran the Baja Breeze cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Herringbone Embossing Folder (Thanks Connie!!!)

This was a SUPER fun card to make! If you make a Twi-Day creation, please link it if you comment on my post! I would LOVE to check it out!!! Maybe I can make this an "Official Challenge" (grin!)
