Hi guys.
I am up early this morning, but I am still going to make this a quick one as I have a little bit of running around to do and I really want to get it done before everyone is out and about in town. lol....
This last week I purchased yet another Sweet November Stamp from ATS. I just love these Zodiac girls and I am having such a great time coloring them. It is going to take me a little time, but I am hoping to get them all. This time I purchased Virgo. My baby brother is a Virgo (not really sure he would like a Birthday card with her on it though). Mostly I bought her just for the pure pleasure of coloring her. I love her flower in her hair and I thought she would come in handy for a more Summery type card. lol... This card however turned out more dramatic than I had first planned. I used a K&Company die cut mat pad that I have had forever and decided to use it in the background. It kind of turned out more of a voyage type card. I decided to tip the picture up to make it look like she is kind of dreaming about where she is headed. I'm not really sure why it turned out like it did. However I have to admit that I am very pleased with how it did. My sweet and very talented blog friend Amy Young gave me some of her beautiful flower trim a while ago and I finally got up the nerve to cut some and use it on this card. I just love how the black trim made such an awesome contrast with her blue flower. I am glad that I was going to make this a quick one for everyone. lmbo... I had better get a move on. Have a wonderful day. I hope that you all have sunshine and warmth.
Hugs, Lisa G
