you're such a sweetie!

Hello! Happy Sunday to you. :) Today I played with some MarketStreetStamps. I used the Sweet Lace background stamp for my patterned paper. Isn't it gorgeous?! I colored the bird from the Follow Your Heart set with distress inks in Festive Berries, Fired Brick, and just a little Aged Mahogany. This is a super quick way to add color using the foam blending tool, and then cutting your image out and paper piecing it to another stamped image. 
Here you can see the sparkle of the perfect pearls and water I misted on the bird. {looks cool in person} The sentiment is also from the Follow Your Heart set from MarketStreetStamps

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! I am stoked for the new season of Shameless tonight!!!! I just LOVE that show!!!
