Happy Thursday friends! Today I'm doing something a little different...I'm guest blogging over on Christina Collins' blog: Don't Worry, Be Scrappy. How fun! I've never guest blogged for anyone before so I jumped at the chance when Christina invited me. Thanks Christina!

I created a sweet card for Maddy using Pure Innocence Believe in Magic from My Favorite Things. If you're a regular reader here then you know I've been sending cards to Maddy. Simon Says Stamp has organized a card drive for Maddy, and you have a chance to win a prize until the end of June, but I'm hoping the card drive will continue into the coming months. 

For today's card I used FMS91 for the layout because I love the simplicity of it. I started with a Sweet Tooth card base then added a layer of Kraft. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card then  I coloured her with copic markers. I like fussy cutting around these little girls because it makes them pop off the card (she's mounted with foam tape for dimension). I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics to cut out the sentiment flag then stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice Premium Dye  Ink

Along the right edge of the card I paired Orange Fizz, Sour Apple and Razzle Berry card stocks for a pop of colour. I used the Darling Dots stamp set to create the dotted pattern using Orange Fizz Premium Dye Ink and the Dainty Dots Border Die-namics was perfect for cutting out the Razzle Berry dot strip. I cut it out a second time from Sweet Tooth and stitched the white centers in place. 

On the inside I simply stamped another sentiment from Pure Innocence Believe in Magic then I stamped the girl again with Razzle Berry Premium Dye Ink

You still have time to create something and send it to Maddy.  Wink! Thank you again Christina for inviting me to guest blog! Be sure to check out Christina's blog: Don't Worry, Be Scrappy. She has plenty of gorgeous eye candy in the form of scrapbook layouts and cards too!

Here are the supplies I used:
