This card sold for USD 4

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are enjoying May in all it's glory... mind you, in Asia May is one of the hottest months with the mercury touching 48 degrees celcius and over in some cities...  it can be a bit of a torture, you know. We are lucky to be in Jakarta where it never gets too hot. And if it does, the heavens smile by sending us rain and we are cool again.

Okay, that was some waffle there and now to some more rambling about this card. Notice how small the picture is - well, that is because I did not colour in the face well and that was the only way to hide the flaws. 

The stamp is from Hero Arts and I have used different embossing folders with my handmade flowers (sadly, I seem to have used up most of my flowers :( and with my fingers the way they are, it will be a while before I make some more.
I added touches of glitter to the dress to make it look glam.

And guess what, for the VERY first time, I gathered all my guts to sell this card for USD 4/ - yes, for the very first time! And it was the first card to be sold from the batch. So I am doing something right!!!

Hope you are having a nice day, evening, night where ever you are...

I am going to enter this for plenty of challenges and here they go:

Love the image, and those flowers, stand out beautifully with the embossing as well. Well done on selling your card for that amount, and well worth it. Be proud my friend. Happy crafting.
