A New Jolinne!!

Hey everyone!! It is day four of this month's My Favorite Things teasers, and today we have a new Jolinne, and two new Flapper Doodles!! Before I talk about my card, here are the need to know details!!

Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog, for your chance to win one of the Brand Spankin' New stamp sets being released on September 1st. A winner will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog before tomorrow's teaser list goes live, and will be posted on Kim's blog HERE. Be sure to check tomorrow to see if YOU are the winner. You can play along each day for your chance to win. We will be giving away TEN new stamp sets this week! As always, you can find the master list of participating designers HERE Kim's blog.

For my card today, I used the new Jolinne. I stamped her on an MFT Cream Perfect Panel, and then colored her in. Parts of her, and her cute little bear, were paper pieced using Be Loved paper from My Mind's Eye. I used my notebook edge Die-Namic(the proper way) to add some interest to my DP panel. My colors are Groovy Guava, and Hot Fudge. The solid color is Vanilla cardstock, which I NEVER use, but it went with the paper much better!!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by!! Before you go, here is all the need to know info!!

For my card, I started with the new Believe in You set that was just released from There She Goes. I used some new paper I got from Die Cuts R Us called Sweet Summertime(Echo Park). I paired it with Berrylicious and Orange Fizz cardstock from MFT. My white is from Gina K., and my image was stamped and colored on an MFT Perfect Panel. My three embellishments are SU ribbon, spiral clips, and brads from Michael's. My sketch is this past week's SFYTT.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
