Friday Feature

Happy Friday! I shared with you an ATC that I made for Hollyanne's swap - the first she's hosted, but I hadn't shared her ATC. So here's my daughter's Friday Feature.

I know Miss Joni will love this because Hollyanne used her very favorite color. You know, if Roses On Paper sold these cute little Imaginesce stamps, she'd also have an entry for their current challenge - summer colors: orange, yellow and something else. Anyway, I think Hollyanne did a fabulous job on her ATCs.

I have a little something to share, too. Not to steal my daughter's moment on my blog, but I am so excited about this card that I just have to share.

I created this card for the July 15th challenge from the bi-monthly challenge group that I belong to. It was to create a hidden panel card that the tutorial was found on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts blog. I had actually seen this video tutorial many times on her blog and You Tube, but I just never tried it.

I love this image from CC Designs, Sweet Pixies Gretel. She is just so adorable. I stamped her on Whisper White cardstock because when you color with Prismacolor markers on WW, the colors will come out much softer which is exactly the look I wanted. I did add a bit of highlight with a white gel pen. I'd really love to get my hands on a Sharpie white poster marker. Can't find them anywhere unless I want to buy 18 at a time. That's a bit much! LOL

I used Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery card stocks. I am really going to miss Pink Pirouette. I could just slap myself silly for not buying at least a couple more packages before it was gone. I think SU! was crazy to discontinue it!

These are the views of the inside (l) and the back (r). I used Unity's Bevy of Butterflies and it worked so well with Gretel. This card is so pretty, I had a very hard time putting it in the mailbox. In fact Levi kept an eye on the mailbox to let me know when the mail-lady came and said "it's gone!" when she left with it. Funny! This was a fun card to make - a bit bulky in the middle, so it requires extra postage, but it'll be worth the smile you've put on someone's face.

Thanks for stopping by!
