Here I Am....Now What Were Your Other 2 Wishes???

Hello everyone...what a great day to be stamping!!!! I just love the super cool site called Lark that Stef found for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast today...such wonderful stuff!!! I chose theBelle and Boo Fly a Kite print for my inspiration. This is also for the February Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge to make a card that would make someone grin. The restricted element is sparkle and the required element is a sence of humor!! The Shirley's 2 Girls Gracie with Balloons image and the fun sentiment from the same set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. A wood flourish and button with twine finish it off.
Stamps: Shirley's 2 Girls Gracie With Balloons

I made this card Friday for the Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast to use ribbon and a punched border. Don't ya just love simple challenges!!! I bought this wonderful strawberry stamp by Auntie Amy's Stamp Co. at CHA. The images were colored with copics and glitter was added to the flower centers. I was going to remove the silver pearls cause I thought they were too busy but the paper started tearing. I guess they are on there for!!! Silver pearls, ribbon, silver cording, and a punched border finish it off.
