Crop Stop & Limelight, Sentimental Sundays

well this is going to be short and sweet as i am dead tired and heading to bed a.s.a.p. :) 
*one side affect to the chantix is vivid dreams, let me tell you it is like watching tv all night long!! but it is so worth loosing sleep for not wanting to smoke!! :)

the challenge this week on cropstop is a sketch by gloria with a twist. to celebrate gloria making the spellbinders dt, we are to use a product from spellbinders.  when i go down for my "privet" crafting lesson from her i am going to take a ton of super sharp pins to pop her head! can't learn anything if her head is in the clouds now can i??? *snicker*

got some goodies from cropstop the other day (th birdcage & spellbinders corners) so it was time to "play" :)

 paper: su card stock, basic grey curio, sentiment: e.a.d. designs, t.h. bird cage & bird i cut out of grundge paper and used ink and paint to make it match the paper and covered the bird with bg paper, th jump ring and i think the flowers came from gloria.
**spellbinders: decorative photo corners (hearts) and i found a video on the spellbinders page that showed how to use the impressabilities. (have had them for over a year and never knew how to use them! thanks go to gloria for telling me to look for a video, she doesn't know how to use them either! *snort*) anywho..........i did the inking/embossing on the center strip using the butterfly impessabilities.


 
along with the fab sketch on limelight we are to use pearls. 
(boy that was hard for me! lol)

 cut the card base with cricut wild card cart, butterfly is spellbinders, nesties circle and scalloped circle,  sentiment from srm stickers, and misc pearls & ribbon.

OK so this wasn't that short!! lol 
thanks for hanging in until the end :)

ETA
I totally forgot that both cards are also for Sentimental Sundays anything goes challenge. 
told you i was dead tired!! :)
