...I See Alice Kissing Butterflies..

Whew, I found the Looking for Love Release Week Challenge from Verve yesterday on SCS.
Four sketches that completed
by 12pm MT today and you have a
chance to win the entire new release!! Well since I don't have any Verve stamps yet (but I did notice shipping to Canada is good) I thought this was perfect - except of course having to make 4 cards in 2 days!

This is the last one and it is also my card for Bella-riffic Fridays "New Beginnings". I picked Butterfly Kisses (alice in Paris) from Stamping Bella because she hasn't been inked AND I like the idea of slowing down and enjoying/ being grateful for things it's a good mantra for the New Year!

Alice is stamped with Memento black ink on Papertrey White CS, I wanted to see how it was to colour with my Lyra Pencils that I bought at Stamping Bella; the hole time I was colouring I was thinking of Nicky because she introduced me to this format of colouring and I wavered a bit but before moving bought the set; she said she knew I would - she is a wise woman!!!

I used my nesties to cut out the image and mounted it on SU's Rose Red. The card base is SU's So Saffron, layered with Tempting Turquoise and a strip of Kiwi Kiss. The DS paper is from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie line.

I added some dazzling diamonds and then of course some cotton candy bon bons from Stamping Bella.

I had a lot of fun completing these sketches and I am looking forward to seeing the releases from Verve and Stamping Bella (look out Mr Credit Card!!)

Happy Friday, Happy Shopping

Haven't read your blog....checking in from the middle of the ocean...halfway between Cozumel, Mexico and Key West, Florida.

Can't wait to catch up when I get home.

Fun card Dana! I love your colour choices. Alice looks like she's having a beautiful time with the butterflies.
