TGIF43 - The Newest Member of...

This past week I received a message from Mercedes asking if I would be interested in joining the Design Team for TGIF Challenges!  I have been a fan of the challenge site since day one and I am certainly honored (and pretty dang excited) to be on board!  (Thanks ladies for having faith in me!)
I hope that you enjoy my style and play along each week!
So this first challenge I tried to keep true to "me".  I like subtle colors & lots of white space.
I am really going to miss Lost Lagoon!
I hope you can get an idea on how much shimmer is on this card :)  I used Wink of Stella on the base of the rose and the lines of the yellow flower and I splatter some glue on the card base to give it a little more shine with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
I also thought it'd be fitting that I incorporated a metal rimmed pearl.  I won a pack of these when I won the first TGIF Throwdown (many moons ago). =)
There are 3 roses and flowers stacked on top of each other.  I glued them together and on top of a piece of matching cardstock.  I then fussy cut it (very carefully) to get the solid look underneath.   I saw Teneale Williams do something similar with this card and couldn't wait to try it myself.  Love the dimension it gives!
I carried the stenciled look on over to the inside of the card and finished it with another sentiment from Rose Wonder. 
Don't forget the envelope! 

So there you have it!  I hope that you join us all over at TGIF Challenges.  I'm excited to bring you some inspiration! 
Looking forward to seeing your submission!  Have a great weekend!
