SMILE




Welcome to a new linky party at Make It Monday. Our wonderful sponsor this week is Michelle, founder of MIM, and owner of Pink Paper Paradise. In her online store she carries several brands of stamps including Saturated Canary and I'm using Stroppy Beth on my card. She's a bit pouty and reminds me of my own DD when she was a little girl. She did not like having her picture taken and inevitably a pouting session would occur when the photographer tried to coax a smile out of her. Thankfully she outgrew that stage lol.


 
 
 When I sat down to color her I thought I'd end up with Christmas colors, it is the season after all but somehow this color combo emerged. I do not have a lot in the purple range in my stash so it was serendipity that I ran across an old paper pack by MME-Penny Lane. One of the dp's was a perfect match thank goodness. I kept the design simple on purpose (time allowance) and added some liquid dots to jazz it up a bit. My sentiment is from MFT's DC Behind the Camera Sentiments  and I used a SB Nested Pennants die to place it on. Polka dot ribbon, a Recollections blossom, button and twine bow complete my card.

 Rhea's card caught my eye right away with this adorable and beautifully colored image. She is a talented crafter and always shares the Copic Markers used for each project. I love the color combinations she uses to bring each image to life. As for these two girls they look like they are having a very merry holiday season. :)
