I'm on Cloud Nine!

Really...I am! I'm on cloud nine cause my friend Leslie is visiting. She drove back with me last week and we've been having a fabulous time. Sadly, she heads home tomorrow, but I've thoroughly enjoyed our time together, shopping, stamping, shopping, dining out, shopping.  :)

We took a little trip to my LSS to see what's new and I picked up some fabulous papers by My Mind's Eye, the Pretty Please line...they're GORGEOUS! I decided to pair them with the new Altee 'tude image (which includes the sentiment) from Stamping Bella and the Weekend Sketch Challenge hosted by Cambria WSC80

I started as I always do, by stamping Altee 'tude with Memento Tuxedo Black onto white. Then I cut her out with circle Nestabilities and pulled out the copic markers to coordinate with the patterned paper. I set to work colouring this darling image and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I added a smidge of Crystal Stickles to the flower center on her hat then layered her onto some pumpkin pie cardstock. 

The card base is white with a layer of Pretty Please patterned paper. Next is some rose red with three panels of one of the other patterns in the Pretty Please line. I sewed around the edge of the panels to unite them then tied some rose red ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in black and I added three 5mm Hyacinth Bella Bonbons. 

Thanks for stopping by!

So cute Karen! I just got this cutie in the mail and can't wait to ink her up. Love the way you colored her hair.

Okay, now no need to fight over me :)

I saw this card come together and it really is outstanding! Karen gave me a Copic lesson, not sure if that was a good thing.....I like them - eek!
