Be an Original!

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

I haven't had a chance to take part in any challenges in a while, so I decided to try out the one for the week over at Shirley's 2 Girls. We were to follow a sketch as well as use a punch on our design. I chose to use this adorable digi that just makes me smile every time I see her! The scan doesn't show just how super shiny and glittery the card really is irl!


I started with my go-to papers of late, the K & Co. Wild Raspberry collection. Of course I had to do some distressing, so the edges of the main card were inked with vanilla craft and then painted with buttercream shimmerz to glimmer-ize! The glasses she is wearing are just like my reading glasses, right down to the rhinestones! I love these glasses!!!! They were painted with pink shimmerz. Her cute cami top is painted in pink and buttercream shimmerz and the straps are outlined in a spica glitter pen. The fab hat is covered in polka dots that I added with my white gel pen, and the fun arrangement on top is outlined with the glitter pen as well. I used the spica pen to outline other various areas of the card & painted the smaller of the Prima flowers in the buttercream shimmerz, too. Buttons are SU!, border punch is Martha Stewart, ribbon is a remnant I picked up at WallyWorld the other day for less than 10 cents! The word 'original' is painted with the pink shimmerz also. I told you this little puppy is shiny!! :D The card measures 6" x 6" square.


Play in a challenge over the weekend if you get the chance. They really are fun and do stretch your creativity! And remember to 'be an original'! No one else was made to be you! :)
p.s. and I forgot to tell all of you that I made the DT for Sewn Together Digital Images! I look forward to creating all kinds of things with these unique digis! Congrats to the other ladies! I'll get their blogs listed this weekend.
