An Enchanted Blog Hop

Good morning!  I'm so happy you could stop by today for this Enchanted Blog Hop, sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, in celebration of Tracey's new Enchanted line of digital stamps.  If you arrived here from Tracey's blog, then you're hoppin' along in the right order, if not, then you're going to want to start with Tracey, and hop along from there, for LOTS of inspiration, from  projects made with this beautiful  new Enchanted line. 
This card was created with the newly released Swan Song digital stamp.  I can't begin to tell you how wonderful this image was to color!!  Bringing this image to life was amazing, and I can't wait to get more of these beautiful digital stamps to play with!!  I colored this with my Copics, and added a little glitter to the wings and the stars in the sky.  I thought I'd give this card a some added dimension, so I printed two of these images out, and layered them.  You can see that effect much better in the next photo.  The sketch for this card comes from the Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge this week.  In following their sketch, I added the Prima flowers at the bottom of the image.  The sentiment comes from Stampin Up!'s retired set Small Script, and the loopy border was done with one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches.  With a few rhinestones, and a dab of lavender grosgrain ribbon, this card was finished and ready for the hop, soooooo... Let's go to the hop!!  Your next stop will be with the ever so talented Kym Kreates, and I know she'll have something amazing to show you!!  Should you happen to get lost along the way, here's a complete list of participants:

It's mind boggling BEAUTIFUL in real life - the colors with all their richness and vibrance, the color combo (my fave, my fave!) and your impecably colored image which is TDF fun! Ohhhhhh Lorie, you are truly a coloring master and I'm so excited to have another Lorie Original!!! Thank you so much for the fantabulous birthday package - so unnecessary! You made my day extra, extra special - thank you, mostly for the gift of YOU!!!! x0x0x0
