Finally getting back into the swing of things.....

WHEW!! I have been a busy girl the past week and a half! I am ready to settle back into my routine of doing NOTHING! LOL Unfortunately I don't see that happening anytime soon.....

I finally sat down today and actually played! I did not work on club pages.....although that is fun too! I needed to get my submission for InStyle Stamps in before I get kicked out of the DT!! LOL Seriously.....

I really liked the sketch from Taylored Expressions this last week. Sooo, this is what I based my card off of. Actually, if you go over to the Taylored Expressions blog, you will see a card that is very similar to mine. That is because I liked it so much that I made mine similar to it.


For my card, I used Yuki from InStyle Stamps. I REALLY LOVED working with this image!! I found this super cute paper stack from Basic Grey (GASP, I know it is NOT ctmh!) called urban prairie and used the patterned paper to paper piece the skirt and the top of the outfit on Yuki. I used my Copic markers to color the rest of the image.


I used black brads, black sparkles and Hollyhock buttons with waxy flax for accents. Of course I used the Scalloped Oval and Oval Nestabilities for the main image and my Stampin Up! scalloped punch for the border.


As I was finishing up the card, somehow I managed to smudge black ink onto the oval with the main image. But it is just going to have to stay that way because it would be way to much trouble to re-do it.

I hope that I have inspired, or at least given you a cute sketch to follow! LOL

Thanks for stopping by today!

That card is sooo cute. I love the 'manga' style girl. Her skirt looks great. I am SO glad I am not the only one who smudges ink or messes up a completed card! It drives me nuts.
