Guest DT & Challenges

Well, I have been feeling weird not frantically making cards for the last week or so. Last night it felt so good to put this baby together!



I heard about the GUEST DESIGNER openings for Hanna Stamps from my friend MARY and really wanted to try out. Luckily, I received a RAK in the mail with some adorable Hannas!

Please go HERE to read about the Guest DT call.

Please go HERE to check out the sketch I used for this card.

Please go HERE to check out my theme inspiration for this card.

I would LOVE to be on the team at Hanna Stamps and I wanted to make a super duper awesome card, but I am of the firm belief that when you are trying to showcase a product - you should really showcase that product. I put this card together with that in mind. I used some awesome paper from The Angel Company (along with some green cardstock for the mats). I used copics to color my image, and also used some pixie dust Blingz to go over Hanna's swimsuit, eyelashes, and I also gave her a little belly button jewel. The blingz made it so shiny that you can't really see the lovely dark green swimsuit she's got. I wanted it sparkly, but the light in the lightbox just sparkled her to the max.

Oh, I should also add... my hubby is big and dark haired (maybe not quite so ... ripped ... ) and I'm a redhead. I thought my coloring would be appropriate.

Oh, on the inside it says, "To My Big Stud"...

enjoy your day and wish me luck :D
