Startin' My Day with Whee

Happy Monday,

Today's card is a sweet little card made using a My Favorite Things image and sentiment. I used the sketch from I heart 2 Stamp.

I stamped the Whee girl in Tuxedo Black ink from Memento on a pale blue CS and colored it with Copics. I cut the image out in a circle, and following the sketch, added lots of DP. I sponged Blushing Bride ink (Stampin' Up) on the large flower DP to unify it with the rest of the card. It looked too bare without the ink. I added lots of buttons, stars, a heart shaped metal charm, and ribbon. I stamped the sentiment on acetate with Stazon and stapled to the card.

Materials List:
DP: Doodlebug Designs
CS: White, Pale blue, Blushing Bride (SU)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Blushing Bride (SU), Stazon
Stamps: My Favorite Things, Star (SU)

Challenges the Whee Girl meets:
i Heart 2 Stamp: Sketch
Theme Thursday: Children
Sentimental Sundays: Uplifting words
Pile It On Challenge: 3DP, 2 stamps, 7 buttons, ribbon, something clear (acetate)
Stamptacular Sunday challenge: 2's better than one
Totaly Gorjuss: Star
Paper Play Challenges: Uber pink
Stamping Vacation: Daring Duos-Child stamp and Playground equipment
Polly Craft Challenges: 3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 charm (metal heart)

Here are some detail shots.

This is where I used the acetate (something clear).

Hope everyone is having a great day.
