Summertime Blues...

Hello Again Everyone!  Last night we had a fantastic dinner at my friend Cissy's house. Her husband is a professional chef and the meal was awesome. Just like they are. They are wonderful people and good friends. Thank you so much Cissy and Ted!

Today I spent the morning working and then took a break and played in my craft room. My new stamps arrived yesterday afternoon and I couldn't wait to work with them. As I mentioned in my last post, I designed a card to enter into two challenges. This is the second version of that card although I didn't get my card done in time for the challenge since it ended today.  No biggy!  I chose to work with Sitting Summer Willow because I'm sooooo looking forward to summer!  I hope you enjoy it.

One more thing before we move on, Victoria Case Stamps has announced a big release on January 15th of the "Aurora Collection" exclusive stamps for SCACD (which will be available HERE).  Check it out!


Sitting Summer Willow

Here she is! She looks beautiful in her red, aqua and white dress. Honestly, I was a little reluctant to do a card for this challenge because I wasn't certain that I liked red and aqua together. Well, I have definitely come around. I love them together! The DP's are by BoBunny and Jenni Bowlin and the cs is Stampin' Up. The ribbon was purchased by-the-yard from the craft store. The flowers are simply tiny roses from the craft store layered onto BoBunny petals. I love the oyster baubles! I think they add a little something shiny. The circle backdrop was cut using Nestabilities.

In this photo, you can see the beautiful texture of the pleated paper. You can also see that I raised Willow up with some Pop Dots so that she appears to be sitting on the pleated paper.

Here you can see the Copic markers that I used to color Willow.

Well everyone...enjoy your day and try to find time to color.
