You are still a spring chick


Hello and happy Tuesday. I have to apologize for my pictures today.. it got so cold in Michigan that all my pictures for some reason have a blue tint to it. If i photo edit too much that the card would not look anything like it at all. It's sad this card does look really pretty in real - not so cold as the pic turned out.
The card was created using this weeks Ismaki sketch. I wanted to use some of my scraps i had from last year. This pretty Imaginice paper is just so pretty and it looks wonderful with Sarah Kay... image. If you are not a wholesaler you could check out 7 kids college fund. Tab does carry the entire collection of STAMPAVIE's stamp lines.

The sketch asked for 3 panels.. i did not want to cover up too much of my pretty blue flower paper, so i embossed Vellum with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder and layered it according to the sketch. The white mat is cut out by hand but on the blue shape i used a Nestabilitie shape. It is hard to see but there is some Stickles around the yellow mat for the main image. One flower (top right corner) is airbrushed to match my DP.
This is the inside of the card. Again bad pictures - so sorry!
Supplies used: Sarah Kay "Country Girl" by STAMPAVIE available through 7 Kids College fund if you are not a wholesaler
Other: Martha Stewart embossing punch, Nestabilities, Stickles, Prima Flowers, Making Memories buttons, Copic Sketch Markers and Airbrushing System
simply gorgeous pearl brads where sent to me by my fabulous friend Carole!!!
Copics: o, bg23, bg10, e31,e39, r20,yg05, yr21, yg00,e00,bg11,r05, e34,yr20, y21, r08, e000,y23
EDIT TO ADD: i just got the information from Tab 7 kids College fund that this Nestabilitie shape is being discontinued
