Here's my card for this week's challenge. I've had a version of this card in my mind for a couple of weeks. When I sat down to work on it, though, it just wasn't clicking for me and I was getting so frustrated! Then, all of the sudden, it all came together, and I have to say I'm really happy with the outcome! Unfortunately, today was an overcast day and the sun wasn't shining that much, so it was tough to get a good picture. (That's what I get for waiting until the last minute!) Anyway.....it's hard to tell in this photo, but I added pearl stickers to this pretty lady, she was screaming for some bling! I thought she needed a string of pearls around her neck. Oh, and incase you're wondering, the background is the Imperial Jewel stamp that I stamped 4 times. Each time I let half of the stamp hang off of the edge of the cardstock, and all 4 of the images come together in the center of the card, under the little lady.
