its a memory box contest again!

happy thursday :) this was made for another MemoryBox contest. the winner will receive 100 dollars worth of memory box products of their choice. MemoryBox is my absolute favorite paper brand, they just have the most beautiful designs!
to enter you had to use paper from their fernbrae line, jewels or pearls from their jewel line and a stamp from their new sparkly bird collection.
ive used this gorgeous paper before but this is my first time using their pearls.. i LOVE these! they are small so not bulky , perfect for cardmaking and layouts. and come in the prettiest colors!
this is also the first time i have used one of their stamps.. i am the worlds WORST stamper! but i have to say i will definetly be purchasing more of these stamps! the impression is just marvelous! i barely had to apply pressure to my was the most perfect clean image! it made stamping fun for me instead of the chore i usually find it.
i also used a technique new to me called reverse emboss...lots of firsts on this one!
i stamped the sweet bird image onto fernbrae paper twice, cut the images and adhered over the first stamped image the top layer i used a tiny foam dimensional to give it a little pop.
i cut out a few flowers from the fernbrae paper and placed them over the cream colored image.. and again used a little foam for dimension. i added the pretty daffodil colored pearls to the flower centers.
i used my cricut and jasmine cartridge for the corners.i used part of a SU stamp for the sentiment. my fingers crossed i win this contest :)i love love love their products! have a super day! shelly

Oh Shelly, you did a GORGEOUS job on this card (I am hoping you win!!!, it is always nice to find something that works and inspires!) - really like how you used those photocorners on this card - and the bird stands out NICELY! Adding those flowers as random as you did was a great idea - makes the card even more interesting! Great embossing by the way - and the added pearls also works NICELY! :) - Good luck!

I love to drink diet coke all the time.. I always fear that I will spill my drink all over that layout that I have been working on forever. Until, I found this!
