Shine?

I have one of those lovely summer colds, so thought I'd make this card to capture my mood :) The card base is Soft Sky, one of the new colors that will be available from SU as of July 1. The Bella is matted with River Rock, another new color. The patterned paper is BasicGrey (6" Gypsy pad). The sentiment was created with acrylic stamps from Skipping Stones Design (Angelina Alpha).

The bathrobe is pieced with another printed paper from the BG pad, although it didn't photograph well. That detailed cutting is a pain, but it does add a nice touch! I did some more coloring with my prismacolor pencils, too -the shading around the Grumpy Girl really helps make the white area on her robe pop. And lastly, I just have to say that the tiny yellow primas do coordinate better IRL!

OOOH Nice to know that the blue coordinates with that Gypsy paper. You did a super job with this one!

I will miss you! Going to our condo in OC, NJ for a while. I will get caught back up when I am home before I leave once again for Germany. No computer makes a girl as sick as the one in your card :(
Hope you feel better! Stinky cold!
