Swirls plus new images at Crafts and me = Fabulous!

This week for our challenge at Crafts and Me my digi mate Karina has challenged us to use Swirls. You can use Swirls in any way you want; stamped, embossed, embellished or just what comes into your mind.

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Whimsy Stamps! They have generously offered us a $15 gift certificate to use in there store for this weeks winner!

When I saw the May release of new Sara Burrier images, I just had to use Natalie. I love love love masquerades and this reminded me of that. She's colored with copics but I had to hurry and clean up before I could write down the numbers. Which stinks b/c I really love how her hair turned out and I'm not even sure what I used! LOL I paired her up with some gorgeous Basic Grey paper and this gorgeous metallic grey cardstock I picked up at a yardsale a couple weeks back. I just LOVE it and ran it thru my cuttlebug with one of Tim Holtz texure folders. I embellished with some prima flowers as well as a rolled paper rose using the same grey metallic cardstock. Adorned it with one of the pins I made and some tulle. Love it! It's one of my favorite cards I've made recently. I hope you like it, too and will play with us this week.
