Swingin Pretty Kiwi Breezes



Ive been trying all day to get a chance to sit down and stamp. #1 reason I got my new High hopes stamps in yesterday and I just had to get this adorable little girl AND her name is Shannon. It was meant to be!LOL! When I first saw her I knew she would be so cute for a suspension card which Ive never tried before. #2 reason my girl Jodi is hosting the color challenge today! So after cleaning our carpets and furniture today I finally got a chance to make this card! I love this print from the last catalogs pallete of prints! SO cute for girly cards! I sanded the edges of the dp and sponged baja breeze onto the suspension circle. I had a hard time trying to add embellies I knew it needed something I just couldnt figure out what! LOL! I colored the bridal flowers using copics and added a dew drop then I added some kiwi kiss ribbon to the top. Im still not sure about the embellies.

This was a fun card to make but hard to photograph. I tried to get a pic of the back of the image. I think my floss isnt exactly centered maybe that would help!LOL!
Copics used: bg72, bg75, yg95, yg99, e50, e51, e53, rv11, r32, c1, c5, e47, e49, e35, e37, e39
Have a great day!!

Love this! I didn't think of putting both sides of "Shannon" together like this. Clever! Glad to hear you have your new High Hopes (which means mine should be here any day!).
