New Girl on the Blog :-)

I have just been to visit Carly's Fabulous Blog ,,,she is 17 and has only just started her blog so I thought I would give you all the link so you can all go and welcome her to this fabulous Blogland :-)

Stamp Something ,,, Celebration ,,,

Time for a new theme over on the Stamp Something Challenge


We are spoonsored by Sweet'n Sassy Stamps so a wonderful prize of gorgeous digi images on offer :-) The DT were given a choice of images to use too ,,,thanks Korin and Dan :-)

For my card I chose to use 3 images from the Olivia Celebrates set. The Owl, the Scroll and the Cap. I also followed the fab sketch on the Sweet Stop Challenge

It is graduation time so I thought this card might come in handy ,,, not that I know anyone who is graduating ,,, but ,,, someone might buy it :-) I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the Owl ,, cut around her feathered hands and popped the scroll in, I then added some glossy accents to her beak and tallons :-) The papers are PERFECT !! guess what they are called !! Olivia by Basic Grey !! :-) I inked the background with Stormy Sky Distress ink and then added star dust stickles around the edge. I punched some leaves for her to sit on using a McGill punch, added some green Robins Nest Dew Drops and a Simon Says Stamp exclusives stamp for the sentiment.
