InStyle Stamps Thankful Thursday Sketch Completed!!

I am finally finished with my card!! I don't believe you have met Marti yet. She was a little more challenging than the others have been so far.....at least for me. After unsucessfully coloring her with my markers, I ended up once again paper piecing her dress. My 14 yrd old daughter thought this would be a great thank you for hospitality....as in Thank You for the great time at your party. Once again this card does not WOW me, so I may be making changes later to see if I can get the WOW factor with this card. It just seems to be missing something...... Maybe you could help me. If you have any suggestions as to what would really make this a WOW card, leave a comment. If you think it is sweet just the way it is......leave a comment! LOL Thanks!!


OK I could not wait......it was bothering me too much!! LOL What do you think of this 2nd version? Any better? I just felt like the first card had too much empty space around Marti.


For this card I stamped Marti 3 times. Once on White Daisy CS, once on the Basic Grey DP and once on Vellum. I cut the dress from the DP and adhered it to the image on the White Daisy. I then cut out, glittered and adhered the vellum to the top of the DP. The clear tag that the Thank You is stamped on is from a container of Jim Holtz idea-ology clear charms. I used my circle nestabilities for the CP on the back of the charm and the CS on the front. For my large circle, I pulled out my OLD Creative Memories Circle and Oval cutting system. Who knew it would still be good for something....LOL!! I just might have to pull it out and use it more!

How about a close up just for fun??



Supplies:
Stamps Marti, InStyle Stamps and Say it in Style
Paper: Basic Grey, Sugared and White Daisy CS ctmh
Embellishments: Garden Green and Colonial White ribbon CTMH, Tim HOltz Fragments charms, prisma glitter ctmh,

Hope I have inspired today! Have fun with the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by and for patiently waiting for me to get my rear in gear and make this card!

Hmm I did like it the first way but then I do like my DP so I like it the second way too. Not much help am I?
She's looks great!
Have a good weekend. x

Super cute! I like the second version the best - the added DP really makes the image pop!
