The patterned paper is new from Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss, which I thought was perfect for this image.  I actually took two pictures with and without the Glossy Accents and decided on the one with. :D  I was so relieved that I didn't ruin the card - Whew!

  5. Debra,

    Great job on your first week's entry! I love this card. The Glossy accents on the magnifying glass and the pearl bracelet and flower centers are such wonderful examples of how attention to detail can make a card stand out from the pack! I look forward to being inspired by you in the future!
