A card for my special girl.



Good Morning!

I never know when my Paper Pretties SOTM is coming, so I'm always pleasantly surprised when it arrives in my mailbox. This one came over the weekend and as soon as I saw the colors for today's SCS color challenge, I knew it would be perfect. I decided to also use yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch as well. It all just fit so well together. Although I did use my very very last scrap of Baja Breeze for it! The kiwi piece is actually a scrap of cuttlebug piece I had laying around also. I kept trying to decide whether I needed to keep it, or just toss it. I knew I would find a use for it!
I am going to be giving this card to my daughter Reagan. We've had a few, "she's 8 going on 18!" moments over the past week or so and I just want to let her know how much I love her. She doesn't dance; but I think she'll like it anyways. (I keep waiting for Paper Pretties to make a gymnastic Sophia!!) I tweaked the sketch a bit and put the ribbon behind the image because I didn't want to hide the ballerina slippers.
Ok, that's all for me...gotta go get Tyler from preschool and then we're off to the park. Have a great day!

Supplies:
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Vanilla
Stamps: Paper Pretties Sophia Ballerina
Accessories: Prima Flowers, Brads, Eyelets, Ribbon, Cuttlebug/embossing folders, Color Spritzer, markers and blender pens
Ink: Baja Breeze, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa

Your card turned out great. I love that it fit a sketch challenge and a color challenge. I hope your daughter loves it! We have 8 going on 18 moments, but it's with my son....they can be so strong-willed!
