Greek Gardens from Artful INKables

Happy Saturday!! I am so glad I decided to take off of work today! I have just been lazing around the house. Getting on the puter, reading my last Twilight book, taking pictures, working on my DT stuff. What fun! I call this a "me" day...and I intend to do nothing else but for "me" today.

This card was sooo much fun to make! I have more images from this Greek Gardens Set to share with you. I am going to get busy today...I love, love this whole set...It is so elegant and right up my alley. I got the DP from Michael's. The background Pink Shimmery Paper is from a gift bag I got at the Dollar Store...gotta love the Dollar Store...The ribbon is May Arts and I used a...Jewelry Silver thingy...I forgot what it is called...to put behind the sparkly dot. I used Nestabilities Mega Long Deckled dies and colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. If you click on the picture, you can see the Swarovski Crystals that I attached to the Berries on the Vine. These photos are not the best, cause I took them very early this morning and there really was not enough light...sry.












I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for your visit!

Oooooooh, pretty, Velta! I love the way you put the crystals on the vine -- little jewels of the garden. Beautiful and elegant papers, too. That refective pink is really striking. I love the idea of a total "me" day. I need one of those...it sounds wonderful!
