Here is my card for Lynette:

I began by stamping the image from Sweet Pea's plate #12 "Holiday"with
Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto white cardstock.
Then I airbrushed several yellows to give it an "aged" look.
I trimmed it and mounted on several papers and finally onto a glittery panel
which I had colored with a gold Copic marker to match my sticker verse
by Anita's Art.
I colored some rhinestones (by Want2Scrap) with a red Copic marker and adhered them along one side,
adding one rhinestone to dot the "i" in my verse sticker.

Please check out the rest of the Team to see what they have created for this Hop!
