Papertake Weekly Challenge

Happy Tuesday!  Today I'm one of the guest designers for the Papertake Weekly Challenge.  Their challenge theme this week is  --  be thankful  --  so you just need to make something that says Thank You.  You can get all the details here

I decided to use a stamp from my new Penny Black Mimi and Miles clear set.  I colored Mimi with copics and prismacolor pencils and added Stardust stickles to the heart in her hand and the tiny hearts on her dress.  I used my white acrylic paint to add some polka-dots to her yellow jacket.  I added a crocheted lace border and made a flower with the lace.  I also added some flowers, greenery, and little butterflies with pearls.  My tag is tied on with floss.

Be sure to stop by the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see the beautiful work from the other designers.  I hope you find some time to play along in their challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.
