Atlantia

By the time this posts I should have my soldier home with us! I can't tell you how very excited we all are for this. This deployment has been such a long one for me...funny as it was only a year....the last one was 15 months and seemed shorter.
Anyhoo, wanted to leave you something to look at until I return "back to normal" next week.
When looking through my images, Atlantia just cried out to be inked up. I think she is just so beautiful!! I was still thinking about this week's Try It Out Tuesday Challenge to frame your card and/or image and thought how fun it would be to use diamond drops as a border/frame for the card. They are the neatest flatback diamonds..so pretty!! To make the shells shimmer I used my favorite Creative Inspirations paint. On her pearls I used Smooch Illuminate-gorgeous product!
Then as a final touch, because we know I love sparkle, I added Viva Decor Glitter Liner to her beautiful wings and the outside of the image. I used the hologram..which has the most beautiful iridescent sparkle...I could fall in love with this stuff!!


supplies:
Be sure to head on over to Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, tomorrow (Sunday) where you'll be walking on sunshine for the next release--which is coming on the 30th---and of course some AMAZING blog candy!! You won't want to miss this chance to win..so be sure to head over there tomorrow (Sunday the 25th)!!

**edited to add...that Sam is still not home...we've had delay after delay. My friend pegged it right saying I probably felt like a yo-yo and that I do!! I'll update when he's home**
