Lizzie Anne's Fancy Pants!!!


I'm not feeling so hot this morning, so forgive me if this is short and sweet. I've got a touch of a stomach bug and I'm going back to bed and trying to sleep it off and get charged up before I have to head in to work at 1pm. eeeecccchhhh.

I got a lot done over the long weekend and here is another card I created for the Lizzie Anne Card Contest! My local scrapbook store just got this lovely Fancy Pants Sweet Pea line of double sided dp and I LOVE it!! So I pulled out my Jolies Fleurs stamp set and played with the flowers and swirls.....it's such a lovely set.

The colours in the paper are so pretty together! I stamped the flower several times on Shimmery White paper, because I knew I wanted to play with the colours on the big flower and find my favourite combo. I think I did 3 or 4 in different combinations and finally decided on this one. I used my SU markers in Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana. I then coloured the middle part again, cut it out and pop dotted it on the first one. I used my Mega Circle Punch and My Giga Scalloped Circle Punch and dotted each scallop with my white Signo gel pen. The card base is a Regal Rose 5 1/2 inch square with Bashful Blue on top. I stamped the little swirly in the corner.....I actually did more swirls initially as a background, but it seemed to be too much. Simpler seemed better for this card, so I just stamped it once in the corner. I added the striped piece of Fancy Pants paper and used my mat pack and gel pen to do the faux stitching around the dp and also used my distressing tool to rough up the left hand side. I stamped the sentiment on coordinating dp, punched it out using my large oval punch and attached it to some pink taffeta ribbon with a piece of hardware in antique pewter. I'm really happy with it!!

Okay, back to bed for me! Happy Friday everyone!!
