I have some fun news!!! I won the March Fiskarscrafts sketch of the month! You can see my sketch in my post HERE I was so blown away! I loved the sketch challenge as soon as I saw it, and the photo has been saved forever waiting to use, it had to be perfect as this is one of my favorite photographs. Well it all came together, and I personally loved the end result. But to have won, makes it even more special!!! Thanks Fiskars you prove to me you are the best everyday!
Ok, to the card of the day... this started for the Rubbernecker Challenge and for my sisters Internet Birthday Card... then I realized as it was done it also fit the Papertake Weekly Challenge as well!!!
Rubbernecker Challenge was to use Lavender, Pink and Green - done
Papertake Weekly Challenge was to use Scallops and/or zig zags - done done!
How fun it that! This card is based with a Lavender Bazzill card stock, I just purchased a piece of Making Memories pink and green paisley paper, I wanted this to have the feel of an old handkerchief... so I layered the paisley paper on a scrap of Bazzill Scalloped edge paper and punched holes in each of the scallops. I bordered this with some vintage rick rack in the same bright green color. The image... isn't she a hoot, is a Rubbernecker Character stamp, again with those same baggy pantyhose. She is colored with my Copic Markers and high lighted with a white gel pen. I just love the pink foam rollers in her hair! I used my Nestabilities petite ovals to cut the image and the pink card stock. I put everything together and then "stitched" the edges with the same white gel pen. Then just for fun I added three pink gems to the oval! I just love this line of stamps! And it is all in fun... I am not saying my sister is this old! After all she is younger than I am and we all know I am only 29 - - - -
