First here is the sketch -My card is a vintage looking one - I used my new papers from K&Company for this one and found three patterns I liked together. I inked the edges of each of them, and put them all on an off white card stock base. I cut out a flourish out of a sage green with my MM Slice, and tried to ink the edges of it.. then high lighted with a white gel pen. I stacked two flowers, jewelry spacers and mini brad to top it off.
I really wanted to do the eyelets across the bottom like on my sketch - but in my sorting and cleaning out...well I can't find my Crop-a-dile and eyelets anywhere! Very upset about it, now my sorting looks more like a mess than organized - so I used my Fiskars Border punch Threading waters and a flower satin ribbon across the bottom. I stamped out the work Congratulations from Hero Arts and punched it out with a Stampin Up Word window punch, then inked.
And then there is my image - How sweet is this image??? It is a brand new Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller image! newly released! "Bundle of Joy" - I love it. Now I know I probably should have done the traditional colors as a baby card - but for some reason it just went together this way and I really like the colors - Colored with my Copics and high lighted with white gel pen, then inked the edges, then doodled just a little bit.
And what is the prize this week? Well Heidi from Stampavie has kindly donated two images for the winning prize - two of the brand new Rachelle Anne Miller Spring 09 images
"Newly Hatched" and "Happy Piggies"
I do hope you will visit the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie Blog Challenge and see how the other DT's took my sketch and created some fabulous cards... then please do give it a go yourself and maybe you can get these two BRAND new images!
Have a great Sunday - I am off to breakfast with the locals at the cafe, then home to do some house work and get ready for company coming for dinner - friends we haven't seen in a while, and they have two young boys so that means carrots for the donkeys - they will be happy!
