Smirk Card

Okay, can I just say that I have fallen in love with this Smirk line?? My mom-in-law (who's just the bestestest) went on a mini shopping spree yesterday and bought me a bunch of goodies... a Grab 'n Go case (so I can take my projects with me when I make my many trips to the hospital and to my parent's house), a bunch of great ribbon, and last but absolutely not least a pack of Naughty but Nice Smirk paper which she bought from Brian at Photo Craft. As soon as I tore into the paper pack, I just wanted to make something with it! I came up with this card.

I don't know if you can see it, but the butterflies on the background paper, which was part of this paper pack, actually has glitter on them.
And the wording under the characters have a shiny, foil like finish. I just think this line of goodies are so cute! I finished the card up by adding some flower rhinestones that I picked up at ManLe's store this past weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!! It's been a stressful few months for me and crafting has been my stress reliever! I appreciate all of your kind words and I'm so happy I discovered this wonderful sisterhood of craft bloggers! :-)
