Makes you think of Spring!

Monday, 21 February 2011
Good evening, I hope everyone has had a good Monday (is there any such thing?!)  I haven't had the best day but I've got through it & I'm still standing!

I was asked by a friend in the village to make a card for her daughter's 11th birthday.  Pammie is my biggest fan where I live and is always telling me that I should get myself out there.  All I knew of Tasha was that her favourite colour is orange and Pammie wanted her name and age to be on the card.  I immediately thought of my neglected Miss Anya stamps, perfect for a young lady.  I do enjoy colouring these images in and I don't know why I don't use them more often.

I couldn't really find any sketches that I felt comfortable with so I stuck with one that I've been using recently.  The papers are from my Milton Bear paper pad.

Stamp: Miss Anya - The Greeting Farm; Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copics
CS & DP: Core'dinations & Wild Rose Studio; Tools: Label 4 Nesties; MS Doily Lace Trim
Embellishments: Sentiments - PC Generated; Papermania Gemstones

I'm really pleased with the shading although have realised this image is slightly blurry.  Pammie loved the card and it's always great to hear people praising your work and it just makes you feel good inside!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simply Create - Bold & Bright
