It'll Be Okay!

Hi everyone!!! Happy Monday!!

Here is a card I created for my pal Joanne's challenge on her blog to celebrate half a million (WOW...that's ALOT!) hits on her blog!!! Congrats Joanne!!!

I LOVE her challenge!! Not only did she provide a sketch, but she made it a "sketch plus three" challenge too! SO fun!!!

For my card, I started with this little Pure Innocence sweetie, My Umbrella, from My Favorite Things, and I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and colored her with Copic Markers. I paper pieced her raincoat with some of the same October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper I used on my card!

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE the scallops. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them! That's probably because I LOVE Die-Namics from MFT! I cannot even wait to see the next release...I already know I want to buy it and I have no idea what it is yet!!! I used the Jumbo Scallops Die-Namics and the paper is also from Thrift Shop.

For my "plus three", I chose the following (and I am such a dork that I used even more than three, I used six!!)

1. Gingham Paper
2. Text Printed Paper
3. Ledger Paper
4. Kraft
5. Twill
6. Stitching

I added some stitching and a twill ribbon! The sentiment, "It'll be okay" is also from My Umbrella and I stamped it directly onto the gingham paper.

I have to say, I really love how this came out! I have to thank Joanne for making me think out of my normal box and use papers that I normally wouldn't pair together. SO SO fun!!

I hope to get at least one more card done for her challenge...I wish there were 10 more hours in each day!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
