Elzy in the Pink...

It is never easy to keep reaching for dreams. Strength and courage can sometimes be lonely friends. but those who reach, walk in stardust. -Unknown

A friend at work asked me to make her an Elzybells card for her Mom's birthday...she specifically requested Pink/Green for the colors. I decided to use my Brand Spankin' new Kiwi Kiss and the new Eva Basic Grey papers...OH! and my new Nestabilities!!! Oooo, I love it when I actually Use my new stuff. :)

I stamped and colored the image with my Copics (of course!) then cut and embossed it with my nesties...I sponged on some Soft Sky while the piece was still in the Nestie Die...I love the scalloped ovals so much that I decided to add 2 more nestie layers! Her dress is Paper pieced using the little flower paper from the Eva 6X6 pack to match the bottom layer.

Stardust & Moonbeams (Elzybells)
Eva (Basic Grey,) Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette (SU,) Stampers Select (Papertrey)
Copic Markers, Graphite Black (Brilliance,) Soft Sky (SU)
Mini Hearts Twinkle Stickers (a muse,) Dew Drops, White Gel Pen, Paper Piercer, Nestabilities Classic Ovals
