I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts for giving me the opportunity to be on her very 1st Design Team (DT). I am super uber excited to be given this chance to showcase some of the great products she has on her online store. My term will officially start August 1st and did I say I was thrilled :)
Please go over to Mandy's online store where she offers a very nice variety of product from paper to stamps to lots of embellishments. And don't forget to bookmark her Blog and check back often! Not only does she showcase some great projects but she also always has the latest on the greatest stuff at the store.
Secondly, I would really like to extend a huge hug to Emily at Em's Closet because she was the 1st person to put Limelight on my radar as well as sending me over when she saw Mandy's post about the DT. How sweet is that to think of me!!!!
Here is the card that I made to celebrate this very happy event for me. It serves two purposes - a thank you to Mandy (Hey Thank YOU!!!) and of course I had to have my monkey wearing a party hat (with a little bit of bling) plus you have to have food at a party so he's got some bananas to share too.
I just automatically grab black ink for my outlines, but I decided to grab my Brilliance Coffee Bean Ink Pad. This is a really cool color because it is also shimmery. I then colored my monkey in with my Copics, added the party hat with some stickles (pop dotted of course), and added some liquid glass to my bananas. Such simple little touches that give it that something extra.
Thanks for stopping by and celebrating with me. Please make sure you go visit Mandy's store and her blog too!!! She's having a little special going on right now - 10% off Stampendous and Pink Cat Studio Stamps. Plus she offers FREE shipping for orders $35 or more and as a bonus a free bottle of stickles. I have to be honest here and say that FREE shipping puts me over the edge.
