You R Wonderful!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
I hope your week is going well....
Mine has been busy, busy! 
With school ending in just a few short weeks (YAY)
things get a little more hectic these days...
Also, planning another quick trip to Vegas
plus 2 of my boys have Birthdays this next week....
At least the weekend will be here before you
know it.. umm tomorrow! LOL
and maybe I can get caught up on a few more
things I need too... Other wise it'll just have to wait til
Summer Vacation! 😎

I do have an Elegant card to share with you today..
I was watching a Jennifer McGuire video about a 
week or two ago and watched her use some
Perfect Pearls on some cards... I've actually NEVER
used the stuff before... I know your all thinking WHAT???
What's wrong with you Theresa?? hahaha It's all good...
Sooo... I actually went out & purchased a small pack from
Joann's to try this technique out...

So, this card is inspired by Jennifer McGuire --



I got a brand new stamp set off of Ebay for like $2 and
it had these pretty 3 step stamping flowers & leaves... So I
thought, this is the perfect set to test it out on... And WOW!
I sooo LOVE the way this card looks.... it really shimmers
in real life! It did take me like 2 tries at first, because it
was human error! But then I got with the program and
BAM made this pretty card! LOL


** Supplies Used on this Card **

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Scalloped Stitched Card Mat Die - Craftin' Desert Diva's
Banner Die - Lawn Fawn
Perfect Pearls - White
