Paper Makeup Wednesday Style

Good Morning!  This is the first of my regular weekly posts for Paper Makeup Stamps.  I'm calling it Wednesday Style.  This is just my sorta style and the only creative title I could come up with that sounded like it pertains to make-up.

Now I am really pleased with the coloring I did on this card, but I'm not sure I am pleased with the over all card.  I guess I just haven't quite gotten into my groove with playing with the fairies again.  I will though!

I had an idea that I would emboss the layer with the sentiment.  Then I realized after my card was just about done that I forgot to do that.  I did use an easy sketch that I found by Penny's Challenges.  But what I really liked is Just Us Girls challenge to use ribbon scraps.  I case'd a few of their ideas to put ribbon behind a punched out shape.

Thank you for visiting me today and for leaving your thoughts.
