SCS Blogger 3 Challenge 1

Good morning all! I can't believe yesterday was Thanksgiving... where exactly did this year go??

First, here's my card for the SCS Blogger Group 3, Challenge 1!! Saxon challenged us to use orange and yellow with at least 1 flower stamp. I decided to ink up Stamping Bella's Belinda Bumbleboots for the first time. I will not admit how many months she's been sitting in my stamping area!

Orange and yellow typically are not favorite colors of mine, but I am pretty happy with how this turned out. I stamped her on a sheet of CTMH Boom-Di-Ada paper (love this set!). Then, I stamped her again on a solid sheet of

paper, and finally on this cream colored cs. I paper pieced her umbrella, skirt, and pocket from her jacket from the pp. I colored and cut out the jacket, boots, and water from the solid sheet of cs and pieced it on. Finally, I colored her skin and hair directly on the cream cs. I used my glitter pen for the flowers in the umbrella and skirt and stickles on her wings.

I used the Bella Sketch Challenge 54. I layered the image panel on another piece of the BDAda pp, and layered that over a piece of MM autumn cs. I sponged CTMH chocolate ink around all the edges.

Then, I took a piece of PTI Lemon Tart cs as my base and masked off a 1/4" all around it. I stamped that small flower from the CTMH With Love set in versamark all over, and then a few times in chocolate for some pop. I then sponged the edges in chocolate, lifted the mask and had a great sharp line. I added a "Happy Everything" sentiment from the same set (couldn't resist since that's the name of my blog-lol). Finally, some brown grosgrain ribbon and it's done!

Please vote for my card! I could win everyone else's!

What a cute card.

My favorite holiday (Thanksgiving) is now over. I am ready for January now. I have done alot of my Christmas shopping on line and I feel like I don't have anything to do now. I stopped the Black Friday thing. People get way too mean and ugly to suit me. It's like they gripe about lines...HELLO? Makes me nuts.
