Kazan's Sketch #9

I felt like making a girly card for Kazan's sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I decided on the pink and white color scheme first, then--although it may seem an odd choice--selected this owl as my main image. I wanted to use bling on its eyes, then figured I could do rows of bling to fit with the sketch. I dug out this pretty satin ribbon to up the feminine factor a little more.

Unfortunately, I had a heck of a time getting a decent photo of this card. This is the best I could do (so hard to capture the beauty of bling on camera), but I'm still not satisfied. Sorry! It really sparkles IRL.

Stamps: Birds Galore (Inkadinkado), Essential Sentiments (MFT)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, PTI white, Bazzill pink textured

Ink: Pretty in Pink

Accessories: ribbon (Michael's), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, rhinestones (The Paper Studio), dimensionals
