Wishing you Bright Sunshiny Days!

Today's card was made for one of my best friends from my home town.  We were 'young mothers' together some 35+ years ago and spent lots of afternoon strolling our little ones.  

For her card this year, I selected Polkadoodles, Winnie Starfish/Sandcastles ~ Float Away.  I love picking stamps and coloring them to resemble the person receiving them. This image is her up and down!

After printing to fit an A2 card base, I used my Copic markers for coloring.  For the decorative edges on the image and the water embossed matting, I used Penny Black's Elegant Stitching die set.  Next I returned the colored image to my Misti and stamped the sentiment.  Then I added the matting and then the image to the white card base.  Lastly I added glossy accents to her glasses for an extra dimensional effect.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not JustScraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards and other crafting items.
