Shy Nessa


Today's card came together so smoothly - the opposite of yesterday's! It was time consuming, but not because I had to redo anything - a truly enjoyable time spent creating. This cute digital image is one of Mo Manning's and she is called "Shy Valentine Nessa" - she is so sweet! I fussy cut and layered the heart and the ruffles on the dress and her stockings and the little hearts in her hair. Then I used Stickles on the ruffle and ribbon trim of the heart to add some sparkle and create a contrast between the green colors. The flowers were made using various punches and everything was outlined in black marker to give it added dimendion. The challenge at the "fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge has a theme of "Polka Dots" which is a favorite paper pattern of mine. Looking at all of the card entries and the creative way the dots were used is awesome! Check them out and enter your own dots! The challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog has a theme of "Anything Goes" w/a Mo Image and there is also a sketch which is unusual for this challenge blog to have. I love sketches and so this was great fun! The challenge has just begun so why not enter your creation?

I am happy that you came to visit me today! Wishing you a happy weekend!
