No Pouting

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  We've got a lot of errands and such to do today, but before getting going, I'm popping in to share the card I made for a few challenges I like to do.  My card is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #164, Addicted-To-Stamps Challenge #35 (Christmas in July), Whoopsi Daisy Challenge (Christmas in July) and Cute Card Thursday #277 (distressing).

Here is SSW-164:



Here is my card for the challenges:


I used SU Ruby Red cardstock and layered with patterned papers from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium and Christmas Past 8x8 pads.  The cute image is from Whoopsi Daisy.  Linnie generously shared it as a freebie awhile back.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bit of Red and Gold Stickles to her hair bows and buttons on her coat.  The cute musical sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I thought it perfect for this sweet little girl!  I distressed around the image and sentiment panels with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  An antique gold sheer bow and a couple of tags from the Christmas Emporium pad, tied with a bit of Baker's Twine, finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day and a great weekend!  See you soon!
