Summer Lovin’ Twilight Style

This card was a long time in coming to creation. I saw the sneak peeks of the Fangs or Fur set at Skipping Stones months ago. My direct supervisor is a HUGE Edward fan and I knew it would be perfect for her birthday. The tricky part was her birthday was in May and I didn't receive the stamp set until a few weeks ago. She has me make lots of cards for her, so I know she was wondering why I didn't make a b-day card for her special day. Thankfully, once she opened this and I explained the story she was still all smiles. She knew I wouldn't forget and was more than thrilled with her personalized Twilight card.

Sketch Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day #147 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday
I think Pam knew I was almost caught up with her sketches for this year, so she decided to do a whole week of sketches! I just went from nearly caught up to way behind!

Color Inspiration ~ C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #61 ~ Hot and Spicy Colors
Red is always good for spicy and I used a glitterred cardstock to give some extra 'hotness'.

My Creation

Image Detail
Here's where I tried to personalize the image. My supervisor has red hair, while Bella in the movie is a brunette. I tried to capture my supervisor's hair color in Edward's love. I couldn't capture it, but I went over his skin with a clear Spica pen so he 'sparkles'.
