Carbon Copied !!

Hello Everyone!!
Its a super exciting day!!! I'm playing along with the uber talented Karen Baker for her new blog feature CARBON COPIED. I loooooooove Karen's work and I'm feeling very honored right now :)
Here is how its works...we both use the same stamp set, same challenge, same post date and same post time. We picked PTI~ In Bloom stamp set and FTL#155 with a bit of ColourQ challenge today.
The ColourQ comobo we picked is.... CQC#89.


Here is my take on this challenge...

Love this sentiment...I used the blooms to create a background. Just added a few Martha Stewart butterfly punch outs ,rhinestone and pearls to embellish the card.

Let me know what you think about my card and make sure to hop over to KAREN's blog to check out her take on this challenge.
Thank you Karen was super fun .

Today I've a no-stamping project to share with you. I tried a new fabulous technique for this card and I'm very happy how it turned out... now you tell  me if you like it.
Gorgeous My Mind's Eye~ Lost & Found 2- Breeze paper collection and fabulous Stampendous Fran•táge Class A' Peel stickers are the perfect match. When I saw the crown patterned paper I knew I had use it with the crown stickers.
Now the technique part.... 
 I tried Fran Seiford’s Encrusted Jewel Technique it!!!
  Applied some versamark  ink on the bottom left corner and then sprinkled a mix of embossing powders, glitter and Mica Fragments on it. Heat embossed it.
Up close it looks wonderful..adds a great texture and interest to the project!
