Sweet Pea Thousand Years Waiting

I broke out of my comfort zone and tried a larger size card and I think I like it.  So much more room for so much more bling!
This card uses Plate #30 "Thousand Years Waiting" with a portion of a saying on that plate as well.  You can view this plate
(and all those luscious Fantasy Art images) HERE 
Sweet Pea Plate #30
Pearls by Queen and Company
Spellbinders die "Classic Scalloped Squares"
Provo Craft die "Fancy Flourishes"
Flowers by Prima
Copic markers
Dye ink by Memento "Tuxedo Black"
dyed Skittles (unknown)
Black lace seam binding by Coats and Clark
Designer paper by Daisy D's
handmade glue dots*

*TIP*  Make your own glue dots by putting the size you want of Aleene's Tack It Over and Over glue onto some waxed paper and letting set overnight to make them repositionable.  

I cut half a sheet of 12x12 paper for my base card and folded in half to make the card 6x6"
I trimmed the dotted DP just a smidge smaller with another DP scrap layered across the center.  I added the binding over that strip with a diecut frame and the focal image over that.  Added some flourish diecuts and pearls and more bling than ever could have fit a smaller card.....can you tell I had a blast with this one?
