Special Day...

Hello!
So happy you stopped in.

Here is my digitally designed card for Make It Monday. I've used this little image and sentiment called It's Your Special Day from our sponsor Digi My World.  As much as I love cutting into my paper stash, I thought that some of the gorgeous free papers and images I've downloaded needed to be used as well so I designed this double paper layered card on Microsoft Word.  I do believe it's time to change the ink in my printer, but frugal me will milk that thing to the last drop, and so the inner layer of paper isn't as defined as it appeared on my screen.  For a little extra dimension I've paper pieced the dress, bow and shoes and I've added dots of Buttercup liquid pearls to distinguish one paper from the other.  The banner is also a freebie which I've foam mounted as well as the balloons.  I hope you'll join us in the always fun linky parties at Make It Monday where the prize will be a $10 gift voucher!!   At the bottom of the post I will leave links to the images and paper I've used if you're interested in checking them out.  Thank You so much for taking time out of your day to visit me and I thank you for your always kind and encouraging comments.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!
PICK OF THE WEEK
This stunningly colored card is #63 from mONAmi at Handmade by MONAMI.  I love the captivating eyes and the bold colors.  Please give her blog a visit and see the other unbelievably striking images she has...just gorgeous!
