Let's Hang Out...

I just had to switch gears to a girly card today. I needed a little pink in my day and the bird on the clothes line makes me happy.   :)

The layout is from the Mojo Monday sketch #68. It's a contest this week...go check it out!

The image is Funky Clothesline from Stamping Bella, and the sentiment is also Stamping Bella. I stamped it with Memento black onto Gina K pure luxury cardstock and coloured it with copics. I used my Labels One nesties to cut out the image and the pink layer. I also added some shimmer to the lacey looking border on the garments, but it doesn't really show in the photo. 

The card base is my fave cardstock, Gina K 120lb, followed by a layer of Not Quite Navy with distressed edges. The patterned papers are from the Imaginisce 'Loves Me line', which I picked up today on a shopping trip to my LSS, Right at Home Scrapbooking.   

The flowers along the bottom are SU Filigree brads, but instead of using the silver brad center, I used a pretty pink Bonbon from Stamping Bella. I didn't want to distract too much from the image, but I needed to stick to the sketch, so I used a litle Heidi Swapp ghost flower and a pink Bella Bonbon at the edge of the clothesline. 

I keep thinking the little flowers in the background kinda look like butterflies fluttering by. 

Thanks for stopping by!
