Sugar Nellie Cutie!!

Hello~~~  today I decided to make an ALL White card!!!
I am really Hooked on Easel Cards~~Just love the way you can display them as a piece of art!!!!!

Used sketch by Jay Jay from SSS 

Meet this cute Sugar Nellie called "Windswept" by EB.

Colored with Copics and Accented with Gelly Roll white and clear star pens.

This view shows the many dimensional layer.
The SU Happy Birthday sentiment was stamped onto a Marianne D flower with Rich Cocoa Ink and then I tucked flower under pendant and popped up top edge with 3 layers of foam tape.

A few close ups showing The sparkle of the Clear star Gelly roll pen AANNNDDDD I tried for the first time some Sparkle Mod Podge that I got as a sample when at CHA!!!  If you look close~~I painted it over the SB Fluer de Lis Pendant~~Oo La La I likey!!!!  SPARKLE--BLING--SHINE~~~MMMMM--MMMM   GOOD!!!!!!!
Used the same CB folder on stand of card as I used on front :)
Left top half of card blank for a personalized message.

The new Magnolia Doohickey Dies ARE  to die for!!!!!
The tag was softened with Inkadinkado ballerina pink chalk ink and  MFT sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  Accented with ribbon, flowers, and Viva decor rose paper pen sprinkled with glamour dust!!
