Picture Perfect

Hi everyone,
I hope you had a great start to your week. Today's card was inspired by Joann's craft store advertisement  I received a while back it was so pretty. You know when you see something you get inspired and you know exactly what you want to create with those colors or you know the image you want to use for your card/project. Well that is exactly what happened to me when I saw the picture below from the JoAnn's ad. Here is the picture. I thought is was so pretty with the pearls around the neckline and then used as on the shoulders and the pink was just so pretty.
So after seeing this I got my digi stamps I get from Cuddlebug Cuties (they are free for a limited time, if you are a follower). I printed out Dream by Anna Stillwell she is the designer behind all her beautiful stamps. Please go to her site and check them out they are just beautiful. So I started this card and then hit a road block (Have your ever had that happen?) I just didn't know what embellishments to put on it. Took me a couple of weeks to figure it out, finally found what I needed and it was perfect. So here is my card, I hope you all like it, I have to say the with right embellishments it turned out beautiful. (proud of my work) lol

Here is the card - also I am trying something new with my photos. I recently viewed a tutorial on how to make photo's more appealing to your audience from SCS.  I posted three pic's 1) front view, 2) side shot with tranparency sheet.
