613 Avenue Create - Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  It's super early and  I hope I am still sleeping when you see this!  I am here to share my last post as Guest Designer for the 613 Avenue Create blog.  It's been a wonderful 3 months and I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to design with the wonderful and talented ladies there!  This week's challenge is sponsored by Meljen's Designs and the theme is "anything  goes".  I was lucky to receive a cute digi stamp from Meljen's to use for my card.

Here is my creation:

My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned papers are from the Carta Bella Winter Fun 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Just Like Dad from Meljen's Designs.  I printed him on Make it Colour Blending Card and colored him with my Copics.  I added a few dots with my Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  The sentiment is from Sharon at A Piece of Heart blog. She generously shared it as a freebie last June and you can find it here.  Some stitched Blue Bayou ribbon finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the 613 Avenue Create blog and check out the fantastic creations from the DT!  I know they would be thrilled if you played along!
