Love You...

Hi there! Just popping in to share this little sweetie of a card today! I made this using the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #130 sketch and I'm going to take the plunge and enter the My Favorite Things October 2010 Guest Designer Challenge! It would be an honor to join their talented group if even for a month! I admire so many of their designers work and I am inspired every day by them!

I used the image from the MFT Friends Forever Jolinne set and the sentiment from the Just For You set. The Challenge is a color challenge to use raspberry, lime green and aqua with an optional color of yellow. I simply adore this paper collection and it had all the perfect colors! I even added just a touch of yellow in the center of my smaller butterfly! I cut out the image using the Spellbinders Labels Sixteen die set - a new favorite of mine!

I have a little girl (who's not so little anymore!) and she always loved to dress up like her dolls. We had American Girl dolls and the matching dresses for her too. That inspired me to make the teddy bear wear a matching dress to Jolinne's! I colored them using copics and then added all the details including the Die-namics Rounded Banner Trio to frame my sentiment! I punched a couple of butterflies, added a little striped sheer ribbon and a few pearls to add a little shimmer!

More Challenges:
The Pink Elephant #85 - childhood
