I made myself something!

I don't know about you guys but I very rarely make myself anything.  Well the challenge at JDE is the color challenge to use red, blue and purple.  Also we are being sponsored this week by A Day for Daisies digi stamps.  I just love this image called Growing in a Snowglobe.  I decided to make something to hang on my office door, the finished size is 8 x 10.
The black and blue paper bases were cut from a banner file which was a free weekly set from Designs on Cloud 9.  The Scalloped border is a Spellbinders die with the Jolee's Hotfix crystals.  The ribbon is stiff and sparkly and was very easy to stamp on.  The letters are from a CTMH set called Chocolate Alphabet small.
I used Copics E00 and E000 for her skin and Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol for everything else, Stickles on her wings and center of flowers, I used PearlEx #673 interference violet inside the snowglobe (doesn't show in pictures though!)

Ok so here is my "goof".  I was almost done and below is the original border with the additional die used to cut the hearts and dots which was fine until I decided to to fill them with Stickles.  I was so not happy with the result and mad at myself for "ruining" and almost finished project.  I'm sure you've been there LOL!  Anyway I decided to cover it with another scalloped piece and added the Jolee's crystals.  I am much happier with the final result!  Whew!
