That's How I Roll

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your day and week are off to a great start!  It's cold and rainy here.  A perfect day to stay in and craft, if only I could!  Before I head out into the mess, I'm popping in to share a card I made just for fun.  It happens to fit a few challenges I like to do, too.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey What's Up 6x6 pad.  My fun image is California Rolls from MayzyArt.  You can find her in Mayzy's shop here.  I printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Stickles to her hair ties, belt and jewelry for some sparkle.  I also added Glossy Accents to the face of her watch.  The cute sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Let's Do Sushi word art set in Paulette's store here.   Three Basic Grey Bling It gems and a purple double-loop ribbon bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  If I haven't visited you already, I'll be by later this afternoon when I get home.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
MayzyArt Challenge #008 (anything goes)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #188 (sketch)
Eclectic Ellapu (recipe: 1 diecut, 2 papers, 3 embellies and a dash of ribbon)
The Squirrel and The Fox #35 (anything goes)
Basic Grey Challenge #85 (new beginnings or use something new - my image and sentiment are both new)

Here is SSW-188:

Have a great day!


  1. Oh, cute card, Carla. Fun image and colored to perfection.
