For The Mr & Mrs

Happy Thursday! I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far, and and exceptionally wonderful day!

It's Terrifically Thrilling Thursday, at Shelly's Images and that means it is time for a new challenge!

This week, we have a tic tac toe challenge for you! These are so much fun because there are so many great possibilites for creating your project. There are some very easy to do combinations, so you won't want to miss out in playing along with us! You know you want your own chance to win Our coveted Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal awards. You'll have a chance at being our Top Hat Winner, too! There are coupons and prizes to be won. We even have a fabulous sponsor this week, too! We're being sponsored by the oh so fabulous Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty, who's giving one medal winner a $10 goodie package!

Hurry over and play along at Shelly's Images!

My card for today uses Diamond Ring, which is today's featured image from Shelly's Images! That means this fabulous image is on sale, today only. Hurry over to the Shelly's Images Store to pick up this image for your very own at this special price!

I've colored the Diamond Ring image with Promarkers and added some sparkle with a clearstar gelly roll pen as well as highlights with a gold metallic gel pen. I found this fabulous black paper embossed with metallic gold designs, in my stash, and knew it was perfect for this image. I then layered it with a strip of gold metallic paper printed with tiny gold stars, then added black sheer ribbon with white splatter spots, down the center of the gold metallic strip. (It's difficult to see in the pic because the light reflected on all the metallics and almost blurred out the ribbon to where you can see the lines of adhesive beneath the sheer ribbon - and they look gold! LOL) The black and white patterned strip down the right side is actually for Halloween and is by Martha Stewart. It really goes well with the other papers, I think, and doesn't even look Halloween! (Yay, me, for thinking outside the box! LOL) The black and white printed paper strip is accented with metallic gold flatback pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. above the image, I embellished with metallic gold branches punched with the branch punch by Martha Stewart, then added a two layer flower. The sentiment is a clear stamp by Studio G.

I absolutely love how this turned out! This has become a favorite image of mine!

I originally created this is an Anniversary card, but it could also be used as a wedding card or even just to say "I Love You."
