Margaux

Whooo-hoooo! Productive day today! I got up early and went for a run with my friend Dawn, showered and went around to pick up work for the week, got reports typed up, AND made a card! Love productive days like this.



A little about the card. It's 5" square and the main matted image is up on foam tape. Stickles were added to Margaux's pockets (you KNOW I love my sparkle), belt, hat, paints, easel clips, and the bear's bow. The mini rhinestones.....yeah, you know what's coming, right?.....I had to hide a smudge so one of the little clusters of rhinestones are doing just that...hiding the boo-boo! I seriously don't understand how smudges end up on my images. Anyway.....

Here's the inside where I used a sentiment to make it a birthday card...



...thought the Penny Black sentiment went perfectly with the Sarah Kay stamp.

Okay, that's it for me today. Have a great night!

STAMPS: Stampavie/Sarah Kay Margaux is Painting, Penny Black Paint the Town (sentiment on inside of card)
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers

So pretty, Denise! Those are the cutest itty bitty rhinestones. Smudge or no smudge, they really add a special quality to your design. Awesome coloring, and what a perfect sentiment!!
