MTTSC13 - Whiff of Joy!

Happy Twinkling Tuesday! How is your week going so far? Today we have another "Temporary Twinkie" designing our sketch - Madelynn's brother Jack! I am *thrilled* that he went easy on us! ;-)

I combined this one with this week's Whiff of Joy challenge too - #20 Lavender & Lace. I used this sweet Melinda Reading Book image for mine. This is my first card using her and she is SO much fun to color! My lace is along the bottom of the main image panel. I had to leave off the piercing because I didn't leave myself enough room on either side of Miss Melinda! Whoops. Note to self - refer to sketch often to avoid missing details.


I colored Melinda with Copics, added the green and lavender polka dotted ribbon, then added her to the card base using dimensionals. I found these PERFECT lavender flowers in my stash, added some pearl centers and viola. Easy peasy! I don't know what it is about the purple and green color combo, but whenever I reach for purple, green is not far behind!

That's all I've got for today, but I will have TWO projects tomorrow, so check back! Oh wait, that's not true! A reminder -- tomorrow is the last day to enter my Ribbon Blog Candy by leaving a comment on THIS POST. There aren't very many names on the list right now so your chances are good!

17 people made my day!:
