Pink and Sparkly

That's the theme at  Crafts and Me Challenges.  And this is my card with a Sara Burrier digi image called Twilight Lily Fae.  I love the gentle image she presents and pink seems a perfect colour for her  :)

I've used Copics to colour her and Distress ink around the edges.  The cardstock is SU, the printed paper is Washi paper and I used my SU punch on the edges.  For some sparklies, I've used Stickles on her wings, the gems and pearls are Prima.

And up close to show you all the sparkles on her wings.

I've been doing a bit of work on my Heart  Journal as well.  This project can be found here.  
The Journal will take the year to complete with prompts each month I believe. 

I've gone ahead and done some work on mine--not sure if I'm going to continue with the year-long project.  So I've cut out all my hearts, amongst which are, 3 water colour paper hearts, 3 canvas paper hearts and 3 poster board weight and one corrugated heart which is now glued to one of the poster paper hearts.  As you can see, poster board ones are curled a bit from coating with Gesso, they'll straighten out when done  :) 

Below, you can see I've added gold acylic to the corrugated heart, but before I did that, I ripped the paper a bit and put some music paper down first.  You can see the music paper just a bit.  The heart at the top of the picture has paper that I ripped and glued down with modge podge.  I've punched holes in some~~I think I want to bind it with rings  :)     

So that's what I was up to this weekend~~other than shovelling a lot of snow  :)
