I made this card for Sue, one of the lovely team members on the Ladybug Crafts Ink DT. Sue is trying to help raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research. Since the wristbands, ribbons, etc. for ovarian cancer are teal, Sue is asking for teal cards. Sue also has some blog candy that some lucky person can win just for sending her a teal card. Be sure to check out the scoop on Sue's blog and send her a card if you can.
I used "Mavis Has A Daisy" by Stamping Bella. I colored Mavis with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I decided to paper piece her dress and the flower on her head. I really like paper piecing and I'm not sure why I don't do it more often. Anyway, I thought this pattern paper by My Mind's Eye would make a much cuter dress than my colored pencils.
I used my pawprint punch by EK Success to punch a strip of teal paper and then ran my piece of white cardstock through my embossing folder to give it some texture. I added some pearls to the corners of the card and used pearls for my flower centers.
Mary, one of the other lovely team members on our DT always finishes the inside of her cards and let me tell you, the inside is as beautiful as the front of her cards. It's always a treat to see how she's decorated the inside. Anyway, I decided to finish the inside of this card. Not as lovely as Mary's, but I like it.
Thanks for stopping by!
