Blessed to have YOU in my life

Today's card was completely inspired by a dear friend, Amy from Love To Crop.  She had created a set of cards as part of her DT commitment at Celebrate The Ocassion for their current Breast Cancer Awareness challenge.  If you haven't linked a project yet, you still have until Sunday to play along with the challenge.  You also could link up to the Link Up For Pink Party (here, here, or here) going on now, through October 14th.   In addition, Amy also also created a  set of cards with the same image from  Karber Digital Images to giveaway to one lucky person at her blog.  The technique she used on this card is what really caught my eye.  I love how the card and image are all pink with a slight outline.  This is the technique I attempted to mimic with my card below.  I used my Studio G inks (I lost my favorite blue and had to mute a royal blue with a green for the end result) and my Whisper Strokes markers for the outlining.  I formed a "step-card" base from white card stock to mount the blue square onto.  The cloud paper on the front strip is from a new stack I just purchased  and the blue background paper is from K&Company Embossed Winter  stack.   The angel image is from Sliekje digi Stamps, whose images you may already know,  are an all time favorite of mine.  Angela is a darling artist who shares these delightful images for FREE.   She only asks that you "give credit to her work" when making a project using them.  That's not too much to ask!!!  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps  by Raindrop Echo Designs (Gratitude).   I added clear Studio G glitter to the image and around the sentiment.  I also added one lonely rhinestone in the "O" of YOU.  I had plans to enter this card in the Less is More challenge, so I had to step away from my embellishments and stop before it was no longer a CAS card.  I am getting better, I think...LOL!

I am entering this card into the following:
Simon Says - Sparkle and Bling
Crafts and Me - Use a Digi
Dutch Dare - Special Fold
Less is More - Color of your Eyes
