So sweet of you...

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a good weekend! The hubby and I have been looking for a half circle table for our entryway without much success, so we took a little drive yesterday to check out the stores in a nearby town. We didn't have any luck with the table, but I got to putter around the new Hobby Lobby while the hubby checked out Game Stop, so a good time was had by all. LOL.

Now that I'm done rambling, are you ready for another challenge with Crafty Sentiments? This week, we are challenging you to make a project based off of the above sketch with the additional challenge of using some blue on your card. Be sure to pop on over to the Crafty Sentiments challenge blog to see the rest of the dt's projects, and to find out what you could win if you decide to play along this week.

I decided to use Girl with Heart on my card. Isn't she sweet? I love her wavy hair!

I colored Girl with Heart with copic markers, and then added stardust stickles to the heart for a bit of glitz. I carefully cut her out and glued her onto my background paper. Then I ran the combined piece through my Cuttlebug using a Nestabilities Label 3 die so that the layers would have a smooth edge. The blue bottom layer was made by tracing the Lable 3 die with a pencil, and then cutting the shape out by hand.

Copic markers used:

*Note that a W1 somehow sneaked into my cup. I guess it was feeling photogenic! LOL! It was not used on my project, so I edited it out of the photo.*
