Cute Card Thursday "People" Challenge

Well, this was a long time coming - a whole week - lol! It's been a very busy week here and it doesn't look like it's going to slow down in the next couple either. This is my submission to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge and this week's theme is people. Camera wasn't cooperating or I'm too tired so the picture didn't turn out that great and after a couple of tries I gave up.

I like how the card turned out but would make some changes next time. I used Brilliance lightning black pigment ink on both the image and Studio G Clear saying and wished I had used Brilliance graphite black to give the image that extra "pop". I probably should have pop dotted the main image as well but when you're tired sometimes you're working on auto and the creative juices are nowhere to be found.

The stamp is a retired SU - Frienship Grows - which reminds me of my girls packing up the wagon to go to the beach in the summer. Yup, I could use some summer weather right now! What about you? Believe it or not the image was coloured with 10 different Copic colours. I put my new scallop and circle Spellbinder Nestabilities to work right away with my Cuttlebug. These nestabilities are really cool and versatile. I only wish they made bigger ones.

Have a good weekend.

That is a sweet image!! Very cute card!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. To answer your question. I got the stamps from Close To My Heart(CTMH) - it is kinda like stampin' up but all the stamps are the clear stamps and they deal alot with scrapbooking...
