For Crystal and the Stampin' B's!

This little card is for Crystal {her blog here}, because she is celebrating 10,000 blog hits! We both got started with our blogs around the same time, so I wanted to make sure I helped her celebrate! She's having a blog candy giveaway on her blog to commemorate the event, so be sure to stop by there and get in on the drawing!

This card also fits with the Stampin' B's challenge this week {their blog here}, which was to create a card using only neutrals. That is WAY harder than you would think! I added color to the pearls, flowers and part of the background with my Copic Airbrush (it's still new to me, so I have to use it on everything!) I've been in to making odd sized cards lately, and this one is no different. The finished size is 3 x 5.5".

Ingredients: Stamps: Stampin' Up! {Sincere Salutations}, Basic Grey {Swiss Floral}; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Chocolate Chip}, Tim Holtz distressing ink, Copics; Accessories: Copic Air Brush, Half-Back Adhesive Pearls, Sheer White Polka Dot Ribbon, Dimensionals.
