Time to Meet at the Scrappers Corner

Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers...

A big Welcome to my new followers and crafty friends.

 Today Meet at the Scrappers Corner Challenge Blog is starting their new September #3 Monthly Card Challenge with the THEME: Pearls & Ribbon. You must showcase a My Besties by Sherri Baldy on your design.  It can be a digital image, stamp or 3D Deco image(like mine) and you can find them Here at her Etsy Shop.  Sherri Baldy/My Besties is the Sponsor of the Meet at the Scrappers Corner. I am so blessed to be a part of this very talented team of Ladies from all over the world.  I invite you to go by the Main Blog and check out all the creations by the Design Team and read the rules for entering which I have also placed below.

Conditions for entering this Challenge:

Now... It is time for me to share my designed card for this Challenge. I used the precious Millie Mae 3D Deco Sheet a My Besties image.  I decided to showcase her on an easel card with a shabby vintage look. I strategically placed my beautiful white pearls by Recollections.  And I strip of Black ribbon with sheer black ribbon polka dots on the edge on the bottom of my easel card. I added several fun embellishments: blue jean die cut Spellbinders heart and scallop heart behind it, dry clay shapes(corner,circle frame, butterflies) using Martha Stewart molds, miscellaneous paper embellishments by 3Birds,  Londonberry Design Paper, Spellbinder Nestabilities. Flowers from the 3D Millie Mae Sheet.  I scissor cut all the pieces even the flowers an gave them dimension with pop-dots. 

I don't like sharing about my physically down days but when I do have them they are a challenge. And  the month of August was a very difficult month for me health wise where I had an abundance of attacks from the debilitating Crohns disease along with extra tenderness with nerve damage on body where my legs have are beat with muscle spasms. It has been very difficult to walk far, stand or sit long.  Through all that I still consider myself blessed and I know it could be worse.  I love that God tickles my creativity to outsource my energies onto paper and cards.  So these days where I am bound to lay or recline I love to work on my homemade flowers, color my images/stamps and now cut these wonderful precious My Besties 3D Deco images when able. See below how this particular sheet comes...and they are all pre-colored(so beautifully). All you have to do is scissor cut and layer with pop-dots.
There is so much fun to be had with these precious Sherri Baldy's  images and especially now that I have been introduced to these 3D Decoupage Sheets and technique.  They are fun and tickle my creativity.  And as of *TODAY, Sept. 7th.* Sherri Baldy/My Besties still has 50% off  at her Etsy Store...that includes rubber stamps, digi's, 3D Deco sheets, her beautiful Dolls and More.  Be sure to enter the CODE: YOURSPECIAL50.
