Thank You, Peggy!

Peggy and my birthdays are only two days apart and over the past 21 years, we have usually celebrated our "birthtweenday"; however, this year she was working and so we celebrated on my birthday. We hadn't gotten together in a couple of years (ya, know, that life thing...), but this year we spent 5 hours at one of our fave sushi places - sooooo much fun!!! She broke the rules and slipped a fun "inspiration" bracelet in my card, so this is my thank you to her.
Followed the sketch over at the Sweet Stop, which was perfect for my project.
Chose one of my fave Mo images, Baby Fairy Flora. Wanted to try my hand at "no black lines" and waded my way through the muck and mud in photoshop, but finally figured it all out. Love the outcome. You can find my "no black lines digi" mini-tutorial here
Used some fun DP by Prima with a blue and yellow theme. Also brought out two of my fave Memory Box dies - crisp bows and madera corner, but then really who am I kidding - all of my MBs are faves! LOL. Also added some crystal acrylic flowers, a little personalized tag/ticket, a bit of embossing and spellbinder cuts with the cuttlebug, organza ribbon and floss, and a little bit of stickles painted on her wings and edge of dress. Thank goodness I don't have to mail this one-with nearly 10 layers, it is quite heavy :)
Did up the inside a bit, too :)
Thanks for stopping by today!
Love,
Wendy

Wow, its amazing the difference that the no black lines make. Everything is so soft and delicate. OH I have to figure out how to get my digis like this, its a great look!

I am sure you get a photoshop award for figuring this out without googles help :)

Oh Wendy this is gorgeous!!! I love your cards! I'm so embarrassed, you left me a comment in December, and I can't believe it's been that long since I posted a card. I will be taking pictures and posting this evening. I have done quite a few since then!! Thank you so much for posting!
