Sending smiles

Hello and thanks for visiting!I had some time to do some coloring over the weekend, and today I finally was able to turn this cutie into a card.

For the main image I used the rubber stamp "Dreams of Paris" from Whimsy Stamps, illustrated by Mi Ran. She's been colored with copic markers and fussy cut. My designer paper is from my stash, probably by My Minds Eye. I used a few stamps from whimsy to add to the designer paper print. Sentiment was also just recently released. I used the new nested rectangle die set to cut it out. 
A  pretty simple sketch. I just added a few matching designer paper strips and button with twine to the card to finish it off.


 Products  used:
(all stamps above by Whimsy Stamps)
nested rectangle dies set (Whimsy Stamps)
Papers from Stash, 
Distress inks, memento black ink, copics for coloring
button, twine

I am playing along here:
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes
 Bunny Zoe's Crafts -  Buttons
Craft-Dee BowZ -  Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow

And that should be all for today, I'll be back again tomorrow with a couple new cards!
Have a great day!!

This is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the sweet image!! You colored her beautifully!! The design and details are fabulous!!

For some reason, Blogger decided to add word verification to the blogs that have comments pop up in a new box instead of having them embedded in the post. You can just skip the step and the comments still publish. Have a great day :)

You probably won't see this Lisa, but thank you for the tip about word verification!

This is gorgeous! I loveeeeee the colors!! And the word verify has been showing up on all our blogs ... for those of us have "NO" on our word verify settings ... I have discovered that while blogger is having this hiccup .... our comments still work like we don't even have it there :) I will hit "tab" and then "enter" after this comment -- and it will treat it like a normal day -- and my comment will go thru without doing the word verify :)
