MWAH!!!

When I sat down to stamp last night I wanted to use a Ketto 'cause I hadn't used one in quite some time, and Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #27 was the perfect layout for this little darling.

I stamped Anise with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics. I added shimmer to her wings with my Stardust gelly roll pen. I have to admit, this card was looking like a train wreck last night. I couldn't do anything to salvage it so I left it on my stamp table and went to bed figuring I'd have fresh eyes in the morning and I'd be able to tweak it. Hmmmm....well I did have fresh eyes this morning and the only parts that remain from my card last night are the image and the yellow layer. I changed everything else and it looks sooooooo much better!

The yellow is Prism Sunflower Medium and I layered that onto Pink Pirouette...still one of my favourite pinks ever! The other papers are from my Basic Grey Lemonade 6x6 pad. I added a fun banner with the sentiment and finished it with a Prima and a Garnet Marble Bella Dot.

Don't forget to pop over to Bloggabella later on for this week's Bellarific challenge. Come play with us...it's fun and you just might win $20 Bella Bucks just for participating!

Thanks for stopping by!
