Wishes Granted - Maybe!

Don't you love that feeling when one of your wishes actually comes true?  It's that feeling you can't explain that totally overtakes you when all of the build up, anticipation, planning, hoping, comes to fruition and all is right with the world in that moment.  It's magical, it's euphoric, well, it's just down right enchanting.

Those times don't come around all the time and when I saw this cutie, Wishes Granted, by the ever so talented artist, Heather Valentin over at Scrapbook Stamp Society, I felt like one of my stamping wishes had been granted.  I'm always waiting for something to really wow me and I found tons of wow at Scrapbook Stamp Society!  Here's my own personal genie.

I've been on a purple kick lately!  I think it's all the Halloween I've been around at the store!  I colored this beauty with copics and since I wanted her to have lots of shine and sheen, I added some Stickles to her.  This Art Impressions paper stack is so gorgeous and fits so many different looks to presenting images.  I tried to keep her simple and striking.  I added some Diamond Glaze to her lips and a few Baubbles, a clear stickpin from Basic Grey and ribbon.

Here is her gorgeous face.

I loved this paper so much that I used the rest of the sheet on the inside.

This is a view of the complete inside.  I didn't use any distressed inks along the edge of the writing area, but perhaps I should have.

Thanks for having a look and here is hoping that all your wishes are granted!  If I could cross my arms and blink my eyes and have all things right for everyone one, believe me, I would!
