Sweet

Here's a card of the Sweetest little girl!  She's picked a flower just for you.  This card is made using a digi-stamp from TiddlyInks named Minnie and amazing paper from Paper Temptress.  The base of the cardstock is a stunning Mica, that is both a thick card base and has a stunning shimmer.  This color is called Amethyst.
I added a really cool layer on top by using a clear transparent sheet.  I took the transparent sheet and used  a border punch along the edges, then used a chalk ink pad on one side.  That side faces down against the amethyst mica cardstock.  I used small floral brads to hold the transparency in place.  The image was printed out on 80lb copic friendly paper that's great for running through a printer, I choose Neenah Solar white.  I chose a cute little tag from Making Memories that says "Sweet" to go with the image.  I took one of those tiny slivers of xtra paper that I have, that pink paper is Poptones Cotton Candy.

Project Materials:  Cardstock (Paper Temptress);  DigiImage(Tiddly Inks);  Punch (Martha Stewart);  Tag (Making Memories);  Brad (Bazzill, Queen&Co);  Ink (Colorbox Chalk);  Adhesives (Popdots, Glue All);

Love that look with the clear transparent sheet. I tried to something like that one but I must have the wrong sheets because my punches don't punch it. Very nice effect you have there though. I didn't think of chalk to use on it, I was going to use white ink but I like that effect better. Great job!
