She's All That


Here is my entry for Julee Tilman's Mojo Madness Contest. Julee is the owner of Verve Stamps (one of my favorite new companies), and the prize for this contest is the winner's choice of ANY Verve stamp set. HELLO! You can bet your booty I'm in on that gig! ;o)

I stayed pretty true to form with my interpretation of the sketch (you can see the original sketch by clicking Julee's name above). The only changes I made were to shift the sentiment to the right, rather than center it, and the three embellishment dots were moved up to the top of the image in the form of pearls on her flowers.

Funny (sort of) story about this card. I recently had to place a HUGE Stampin' Up! order to remain active as a demo. I haven't been doing any workshops lately, so it's totally my own fault. I decided to buy the things I wanted, and then round out the order with sets I thought would sell well on ebay after they retired. This was supposed to be one of those sets. Unfortunately though, I opened my box and FELL IN LOVE! I had to keep these all for myself. :)

We have a bridal shower to go to next weekend, and I've been "commissioned" to make cards for my Mom and Grandma to give, as well as the one I want to give myself, so this will be one of the three. Can I just say I love this card? LOVE IT. Like, to the point where I don't want to give it away EVER. LOL!
