Sheepski Guest Designer Entry ~ I Spy Something Blue

Last month I was thrilled to see one of my cards take the WIN on the Sheepski monthly Facebook challenge.  I won a free image and also the honor to be their Guest Designer for today's publication. 

Their new challenge is 'I Spy Something Blue' and I've selected Breezy Beach Walk #110 by Owner/Artist Andrea Norris. Let me reassure you - picking the free image and the challenge image was not an easy choice!  There are so many lovely images on her site! You MUST take a look and shop there. 

Here's my completed card and then a few details about making it. 

 To make this card, I sized the image to about 4" square and printed it on Neenah cardstock.  I used my Copic markers (referenced below) for coloring.  When completed, I use Versa-fine black ink and stamped the scripture sentiment from Isaiah 43:2 in the sand near the bottom left.  

Next I used the Tattered Lace Lacy Days Square Dies for the edge of the colored image, then cut a 1/8" larger solid purple mat that matches the girls gown, and a 1/8" larger solid salmon mat that coordinates  with the sunrise background.  Each layer is securely glued down to the top fold card base using bookbinding glue which prevents wrinkling.  

Now for the QUIZ:  How many 'B' items are in my card?  My answer will be posted in the blog later this week.  There's a small treat for one lucky person who gets the correct answer in the comments below on the random date that I choose to look back. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.  Thanks again to  Andrea Norris of Sheepski Designs for allowing me to join her team today as their guest designer.
