chin up buttercup

totally, totally excited that mama elephant is having another challenge! and this one is a sketch challenge! yes! love those!

i am also entering this into the moxie fab washi tape challenge! i used their 'say what' and 'good times' stamp sets for my card...which i am in LOVE with! lol! 

first i sprayed some heidi swapp color shine onto some white cardstock. and it does shine, it's awesome! i was going for sun - and i think it's on!

then i added some really fun washi which i flanked with some sequins and pearls. ok, now we're getting out there, but it's supposed to be rainbow/cloud thing happening there. see it? eh, maybe not. but that was the intent! i stamped the sentiment right onto the cloud washi. which, can we talk about that sentiment for a minute...LOVE the flourish of the 'b'. 

to finish it off, i stamped the little people from 'good times' in the bottom. i tried to resist...but i just couldn't. i LOVE those little stick people. too cute!

so that's it! now that my little menn and i are starting to feel better...i'm hoping to get back at it and inky. being sick really cramped my style.


  1. I saw some Heidi Swapp misters at my LSS and I was debating on whether I should get it... now that I saw your background and the ombre effect, I must get it! Beautiful card!

    As for your question on my card, yes the bird was trimmed, and insides cut and popped up with foam tape :D

  2. OHHHH! LOOOOOOOOOVE the shine on this card! LOVE LOVE LOVE those washi tapes! WOW-- you nailed this sketch! LOVE those sequins too!! I'm glad you are feeling better!! <3
