You Make Me Smile

Friday, September 27, 2013

Hello, and Happy Friday! I hope you had a fab week and are looking forward to an even better weekend! I'm going to be brief here, as I have two more cards to post in a little while. This card was pretty simple to put together, so I won't go much into what I did. The card recipe is at the end of the post.

I made this card for my DD, who recently had her first AR celebration. She earned a whopping 440 points! It took her about 3 months to do that last year! Needless to say we are really proud of her.
I love this sweet image, and it colored up nicely, but I have to confess that the "dirt" was not my original intention. I've been working on my shading, and it didn't go too well on this image, so rather than have it look like bruises, I turned my mess into dirt. It ended up being cute, but for a sec there, I thought I was going to have to start all over! :) I used a sketch from the September 2013 Week 2 Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge for the layout of the card.

The swirl background on the inside of the card was made with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and a swirl stencil.

That's it...short and sweet! I'll be back later with another card. 

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

What an excellent save; although if you hadn't said anything it would look like it was always your plan...she is too cute! Beautifully done.

Oh, this is darling! She looks great with the dirt. After all, she's been crawling around the garden picking Mom's flowers. I love the sentiment. I just bought a whole set of these kid's quotes by Inkadinkado.
