thank you

I sat down the other day at my craft table to create a card using one of the High Hopes Rubber Stamps that I received from Amy at Paper Romance and had to play with this little cutie called Little Missy.  Doesn't she look so sweet with her bouquet of flowers?!

I paired her with some patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket and colored her with copic markers.  Then, I sponged the edges of my kraft card base, patterned papers, sentiment, and my stamped image with dark chocolate ink.  I stitched my patterned papers to my card base and adhered my image and sentiment with foam adhesive.  Last, I sponged the edges of a little vintage book print flower with dark chocolate ink and adhered it to my card using foam adhesive.  (The vintage book print flower is the same as those for sale in my etsy store.)

Have a great day!

How sweet is that Little Missy ... very! As always your choice of paper and colors is wonderful. Adore your little flowers and the sponging and shading add so much! You are such an inspiration, Niki. Gabby :)

Niki...this is a beautiful card. Very nice coloring and a really cute image. :) And Gabby, don't feel bad. You were right "is wonderful"... because you were talking about the "choice". :) "Choice is wonderful". (Sometimes being an elementary school teacher has its curses!) ;) Okay... red pen is now away! ;)
