Having a Bloomin' Good Day

Hello! I can't tell you how happy it makes me when we have sunshiny days! Perfect for this Bloomin' Good Day sweetheart from My Favorite Things' Pure Innocence line. I colored her with Copics and paper pieced her dress with an older Basic Grey paper in the Sultry collection. Still cute, right? I have so much paper, I think I could make about two cards for everyone in the world before running out. So, I'm trying to give it all some love. All of the layers, except the focal point and card base are from that Sultry 6 x 6 paper pad.


I faux stitched the brown layer, punched the green edge, and embossed the pink layer with a Cuttlebug folder. The pink and white layers got a little tea dye ink on the edges. And the whole she-bang is based on Mercy's sketch this week.

Cheers to you! And see you in the morning with a blog candy winner.
