So, I am NOT loving this weeks color challenge, but you know me, gotta make it work right!!! However, with that being said.....I really like my card, or is it the sinus medicine??? Isn't this image so CUTE!! It is one of the new Nativity stamps from Paper Pretties!! I love the cute little images in these 4 sets and how they all work together so well!! To start, I stamped my image on watercolor paper and colored him in using re-inkers, SU markers, and an aqua painter. I cut him and his layers out with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nestabilities. The colors for my card, and the color challenge today, are Pacific Point, Certainly Celery and Basic Gray. I stamped my sentiment on Whisper White and layered it with the same colors. I wanted this card to really showcase this super cute image and GORGEOUS sentiment, so I didn't add a whole lot. I did my normal piercing, added some large pewter brads and spiral clips(Spare Parts), and some Basic Grey taffeta ribbon. Cute, huh!!

for not posting yesterday. We are having company come in, and I had to do a little cleaning. By the time I got some of it done, I was BEAT...not to mention injured. I was doing something in the kitchen, don't even remember what now, and I bent my thumbnail back so far that it ripped the skin underneath the nail....talk about HURTING...OWIIIIEEEEE!!! This morning it is THROBBING..so we will see what happens!! Anyway, this is my card for Who's That Girl Monday in the My Favorite Things forum. This weeks challenge was to use the Window Shopping set...but if you don't have her, please, feel free to play along with any other Who's That Girl set!! Also, the challenge this week is to show some love to your embellishment stash. If you upload your creation by midnight Wednesday November 12, you will be entered into a random drawing to win a $5 gift certificate to My Favorite Things Store, whoohoo!!!
Well, if you know me at all, my embellishments know EXACTLY how much I love them, LOL, so this was no big deal for me. I did, however, end up with a 7 layer card, which is strange for me, but still, lots of embellishments!! I stamped my image on watercolor paper with Brown Stazon(as well as my sentiment), and colored it in with my aqua painter and re inkers. The dress was paper pieced with some DP from Bo Bunny Press. The background squares are from the same company, part of the Shabby Princess line(picked it up at the Paper Prettie's store where there is still an awesome sale going on!!). I added some silver brads, spiral clips, Baja Breeze and Kraft ribbon for my embellishments. The sketch is this past weeks My Favorite Things sketch, so I got to kill two birds with one stone!! Well, that is it for me now, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
