(long winded post...reader beware...LOL!)
I'm so glad you stopped by so I could rant. Almost had this little card completed. I could see the finish line, when my elbow; yes, my elbow, decided to plunge right smack into the center of this card and not only smeared all the glitter onto my shirt, but the glue under the little pink Bear's mouth...dragging the inked outline right up into her paper pieced mouth. Miffed you asked?? Ohhhh, just a bit!
Error on the operator's side? Quite possibly as I am not known for having the most patience while waiting for blobs of glitter and stickles to dry. I figure 30 minutes OUGHT to be a sufficient amount of time and it usually is, but not today!
Another 30 minutes later, after wielding an X-ACTO Knife and scrapping up all willy nilly remnants of glitter, I gently re-applied the stickle dots and allowed them to dry completely whilst making sure no other appendages decided to go wandering again.
The last step was dealing with the smear on the mouth. I decided that if it works while coloring with copics, why not with inked outlines. So I applied the colorless blender pen and pushed the black ink back to the edge.
BUT...then I went and grabbed the wrong copic to "fill in" a bit on the mouth and now it's too dark of a pink! GAK! I've decided I'm just going to put a boat load of money in the card and they'll NEVER even notice! :)
Anywho, enough of that...
Before I completely botched the card, I couldn't resist this cute little bear couple, Lenny Cupcakes 2 from one of our Sponsors, Stamp Fairy. The other aspect of this card was to meet the challenge criteria we have going on at Top Tip Tuesday which is
We would love to have you join us for this two week's challenge and show us how you

There's also a little tutorial I've done to make this...
Thank you so much for hanging in there with me on this one and I'm soooo happy you stopped in!
