Surprise


Happy Friday stampers!

This month is flying by already! I think Christmas cards are in order very soon! OMG! Did I really say that?
Just thinking of the stress of the holidays is enough to put me right over the edge! (Even further) LOL! Ha Ha!
So for now in the moment of July 11, I share with you a cute card I made from a set by TAC Designs (thanks aloha Jen)! This is the first time I have inked it up! Love this hula sweetie!
I used my Marvy circle scallop punch for my window, and stamped the hula gal on the scallop itself. Placed it directly behind the circle on the inside of the card, you know the drill! The yummy blossom paper is of course from SU! (last catalog). I only have one sheet left! Oh no! I used Berry Sorbet from PTI, and the card stock is also PTI. I colored her with Copics, added some Dew Drops on the flowers and used Prismacolored pencils for her hair and skin. Soft chalks for her rosie cheeks. I also stamped a flower border on the inside, I didn't color it, I left it plain(forgot to post picture of inside). I found the Surprise vellum in my stash and thought it would be good with the way her hand is up to her mouth!
I added the Prima layers and MM mini brads, and now looking at it, I should have added one more layer of Prima's. Design rule , I know better, odd numbers for groupings! Oh well, I will add them, there is room in the corner. Ribbon by the yard-Michael's.
Have a wonderful day and a great weekend! All of the Calgary gals, have fun at the Stampede, I hope you all survive! (wink)! I loved the gorgeous carriages, they are amazing! Yummy burgers too! Calgary (Alberta) beef is tops!
Thanks for stoppin by! Blessings,
Deb
