Hello sweet peeps,

Here is my card to show you today for LIM  which is spritzing. I have used Maya Mist (sand) and for the sentiment and hearts it is a stencil that I have never used in the 10 years that I have owned it. 

I thought it would look prettier than this but this sentiment looks a bit behind (or dated), I feel. In real life and in proper lighting the misted part looks subtle and shiny except that in the picture it looks plain subtle. The white and gold organza ribbon is from my stash and so are the sequins. The white nestie has been popped up with dimensional sticky pads. Over the sentiment and the hearts I did an etching kind of motion with my trusted Sakura gold pen and outlined everything too. And yes, last but not the least some glossy accent was used over the sentiment and heart to give it more depth. The picture with the glossy accents did not look becoming and I had luckily clicked a picture without adding them and that is what I am sharing with you. Better run to enter the challenge as it is 11 hours left for the deadline. Lol.

Found these pictures on FaceBook - so pretty that I had to share.

She or he seems to be saying something here. 

Pleasant weekend,

I don't think that sentiment is outdated looking at all and think your card is lovely and beautiful! Love all the touches of gold.
I'm never seen a bird like that before - awesome!
