Bookworm Cutie

I was able to go away this past weekend for a scrapbooking retreat - except I was the rebel of the bunch who didn't make a single layout, but instead cranked out cards :) I had purchased this adorable image, along with the coordinating sentiment, from Stamping Bella last year. I've been itching to play along with the BasicGrey challenges, so worked with the sketch. I used Euphoria papers so that I could play along with the Daring Cardmakers Amethyst challenge - they're offering up a fabulous prize from Craft Obsessions this time around!

I colored the main image with prismacolor pencils, and then played around with the different patterned papers and embellishments - ended up going with a grungeboard flourish, a few flowers, and a couple gems (which are rich & sparkly IRL)... I love to give books as gifts, so I'm all set for the next occasion!

You’re right Trish, that’s one fab stamp!
The sentiment goes perfectly with it.

Thanks for joining the Daring Cardmakers this week and good luck in the draw.

Fabulous card, love the colours and that image really brought a smile to my face, especially with that great sentiment.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at BG.
