Curly Top

This is the cutest little girl that I’ve run across in a while.  She is appropriately called “Silly Girl” created by Beary Dust Stamps that can be purchased here at Stitchy Bears Stamps.

I made this card for fun and just to see if I could actually make a card worthy of being published.  Of course, I know that my card-making skills are nothing in comparison to the many wonderful ladies out in blogland.  I don’t seem to really have a “style”; I just go where my mood sends me.  (And it sends me in all kinds of strange places.)  I LOVE all of the frilly girly girl cards I see, but I’m not very good at making them. 

This seems to be my “style” lately – a little on the clean line.  I’ve kept the colors down to the two; pink and brown (which are one of my favorite combinations) I’ve added some chocolate lace that I purchased at Joann’s, corner dies made  by Provocraft (if you glue two sheets of card stock together it looks prettier), flowers from the wedding department at Michael’s, paper by Carol Wilson Fine Arts, Inc. from Tuesday Mornings and Spellbinder’s Nestibilities.
The paper was another sheet of paper that was in the paper pack, and I thought it was perfect as it was, with just a little distressing.
The punch is by MS and the sentiment one from a set you can purchase.
I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
OSAAT – use a digi
Catch the Bug - anything
Stamp Something – digi
Stampin’ For The Weekend – spots and dots
Craft Us Crazy – anything
I Did It – children
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my work.  I hope that I’ve inspired someone one in even a little way.  I love to hear your comments.
