Be Happy It's...TWI-DAY!!

So not only is it Friday but it's also Twi-Day!!! This is the awesome Twilight themed challenge sponsored by Jodi Collins over at Stamping A Latte .

For my card I pulled a Twilight reference from the flower in my image. They reminded me of the flowers that Bella describes when her and Edward go to the meadow for the first time.

"I reached the edge of the pool of light and stepped through the last fringe of ferns into the loveliest place I had ever seen. The meadow was small, perfectly round and filled with wildflowers- violate, yellow and soft white"

This description just made me want to make these flowers just pop. My sketch for this card is also Mercy's sketch this week, MTSC55.

I started with a card base of Barely Banana and White. My DP is the fabulous Kitchen Spice by Bo Bunny. My image is Gratty Tude by Stamping Bella, I have been on a real roll lately with them! She was stamped in Tuxedo Black by Memento Ink onto white card stock and colored with copics. I cute the image with my circle nesstabilities and then sponged just the edge with Memento Ink in Cantaloupe. I just ADORED this sentiment when I first saw it. I wanted to start 2010 with a more positive attitude and this sentiment just inspired me. I also added some glossy accents to her shoes for a patent look and then the final touches were the sheer/satin ribbon and some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles.
