You're So Sweet! - "the little Stamp Shoppe"

I am actually in time for a couple of challenges with this card....The Fabulous "sketch" at Friday Sketchers and the fun theme being "at the sea" at Stamp with Fun.

The stamps I have used for this card are all from Magnolia's Lazy Summers Day Collection 2009

All these stamps are available right now at "the little Stamp Shop". Here are names of the stamps I've used- "Bathing Ring" - "Beach Tilda" and "You're So Sweet".

** "the little Stamp Shoppe" has just had a new shipment of stamps come in... of the Lazy Summer Days Collection and also new ones of the previous collections. Heidi has also received Magnolia's Beautiful Lazy Summers Day Designer Paper!! ...and is offering it in a lovely affordable Sampler pkg!! Be sure to check these Fabulous items and more at...."the little Stamp Shoppe"**

On to the card....Again I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda has been masked off so she could sit on the bathing ring. To create the sentiment...I also masked off the adjoining works on the You're So Sweet stamp so I could stamp them out separately...then just tore around them and inked the edges with SU Creamy Caramel ink. I used nesties for the circle and scalloped layer and attached the image circle with foam pop ups onto the scalloped layer. There is shimmerz (Angel wings) brushed on the flowers along the bottom of the image.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - GP white, basic grey "Euphoria", Michael's, bazill cs. Accessories - flowers, lace, glitter brads, shimmerz, ribbon, nesties, stitching, acrylic paint for detail dots.

Today my dear hubby and I have been married for 36 Wonderful years!!....Remember the little "Rock On Honey" card?...well that is the card I gave him for our Anniversary this morning.....and he totally loved it...Yay!! Well I'm off for now....maybe for a little wine...and dine.......

Have a Lovely Day Everyone!!......and Thank you so much for all your Wonderful Comments!!
