Smile


It increases your face value!I love that line from Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias!LOL! I made this card for todays featured stamper challenge. I cased Julies card here. I loved the colors and the wave is gorgeous. I dont have a wave like hers but I do have this adorable Kim Hughes set Ocean Friends from CHF. I love the wave in this set! I used Amys sketch 56 for my layout. Ive been wanting to try Rileys color dare and this week the colors are kiwi kiss, tangerine tango, and taken w/teal so I added in kiwi kiss and left off the black mats. I embossed the teal layer with swirls ef. I stamped the bubbles from the set on the kiwi kiss layer tone on tone and the smile sentiment with memento black. The main image is colored with copics and sponged with soft sky and taken with teal. I popped the jellyfish up and added some white gel pen highlights to her eyes. I added the tangerine tango ribbon and dew drops for my embellishments.
Im not sure I love this card but I think it would cheer someone up! Have a great day!!

You might not love it, but I'm lovin' it Shannon! It's just adorable! I think that the swirls folder is perfect for the water look and that wave on top of the card is awesome. I would never have thought to put those colors together on my own. Good thing we have those challenges out there so someone else can think these things up, huh? LOL Great job as usual with your coloring. You are one talented lady!
