Heaven Sent




Good Morning everyone!

It's time for a new challenge over at Craft Your Passion! This week's challenge is a sketch. Stop on over and play along with us, for a chance to win some digi images of your choice from Lauretta's Digital Stamps and Coco Dingo.

This is my card for this week's sketch challenge as part of the Craft Your Passion design team. This cute little angel girl is from Lauretta's Digital Stamps. I absolutely love her, and she was so much fun to work with. (You could take her home with you... Stop by and pick her up in Lauretta's shop, here.)

I chose Yellow for the card base, to bring out the yellow in her hair. For some reason, I thought this would look nice in yellow and shades of blue. The image is colored with promarkers. All background papers are from my stash. (The yellow is probably the oldest paper I have, since I hate yellow and rarely use it) I love how the card turned out, using the three different shades of blue. (Dark, medium and light) The medium blue paper is embossed with silver stars,and silver polka dots to add dimension and a 3d Effect. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the image. The flowers are punched in yellow and blue using the Boho Blossoms punch by Stampin Up and pop dotted, for dimension. The sentiment is computer generated. The outside of the card says, "Enjoy the little things," On the inside of the card, it says, "For you may find that they are the big things." This card is perfect for reminding those you love to take time to celebrate life by enjoying the little things life has to offer.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
