Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring The Paper Nest Doll's "Sweetheart Ellie"

Hello! Hope you're all having a great Tuesday.  My week has been a busy one getting ready for school and all the events happening this week.  I hope I will last! LOL

Anyways, I am going to get right into our challenge for the week which is " Use your favorite Color Combo"!!! 

Our fabulous sponsor for this week's challenge is Sweet 'N Sassy and The Paper Nest Dolls!


Here is my card...

I had so much fun with this challenge and actually I have a lot of favorite combos.  However, one of my all time favorites are the combo of Pink and Black.  So I decided to go with that and feature a darling image by The Paper Nest Dolls called "Sweetheart Ellie".  Isn't she super cute?  After stamping my sweet image with Black Tuxedo I colored her with my copic markers.  I layed her down on some layered Spellbinders Beaded Circles.  The beautiful papers I used are called "Blush" by My Mind's Eye.  I love this paper collection and have a few pads of this.  I edged all of the papers with my TH distress ink in Victorian Velvet.  The yummy flowers I used are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprayed them all up with my Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Iridescent Gold to give them some nice shimmer.  I also added  few leaves in black to further accent the flowers. These were cut from Olive Branch Cutters Die by C.C. Designs.  I glued these down using Mono Multi Liquid Glue  by Tombow.  Finally, I added some trims and pink rhinestones to finish it off.  The sentiment "Sweet" is from part of another stamp set I had at home.

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store. 

Hope you all like my card! Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)
