Live, Love, Laugh

     This card features another of those I-colored-it-and-put-it-into-the-file-folder-for-future-use but this time I know exactly who created the image.  It's from Whoopsi Daisy.  Strangely enough, when I try to get to their blog site, I get an error message that the blog has been removed.  Weird!  (Edited to note:  I heard from Linnie and she has closed the blog but the store is still open.)


I started with the sketch from My Favorite Things
but I flipped it side to side.

Sketch Challenge 345 #mftstamps

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  The circle die cut with the butterflies is also from Spellbinders.  I layered those together and then added them to a scrap piece of blue CS which was embossed with my "Linen" folder.

     The pink, blue and purple background was done with alcohol inks which were sprayed with alcohol and left to dry, then ironed flat.  I added a shiny, silver-edged, royal blue ribbon to it and mounted it onto the card front.  The sentiment(s) was heat embossed with white EP.  I added one white rose and the tiny blue bow for embellishment.


     I hope your week is going to start well and progress to things even better.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
