Mo's dp2 challenge dt

A little late today with my card for Mo's dp challenge, but better late than never.  for my card i am using "Anna in time out" available in Mo's store, colored with copics.  I know i have to make a point of saving what color copics i use, will sure try in future.
My image i cut with a nestie, labels eleven, then i used another scalloped rectangle to mat it on.

The flourish that i created i made free hand, sticking all the little pearls down with adhesive.  The sentiment i created using a Just rite stamp with a border.  One of my layers are punched around the page MS punch.  Of course i had to decorate the inside of my card, only to find that i was a little short of paper, so had to make a plan, took a little while to figure how, but managed to pull it all together.


All the dp is fairly old, but one of my favourites, by Melissa Frances, "Stella"
i dont think that i have ever made note of so many of the things that i used and will sure try in future to list them better at the end of my post and be more organised

  6. Hey kiddo...have I mentioned lately that you are CRAZY TALENTED?!!! True!! I laughed when I saw this card...made me guess that it couldn't be one of your girls...since their hair is darker...so naturally I imagined that it's a self-portrait of when you were a little girl! The hair color's just about right...and I can so imagine that you (like me) spent your fair share in the corner! LOL!! How do you have the patience and steady hand to create those flourishes?! Oh...which reminds me...how are the wedding invites coming along?!! We'll catch up on Skype this weekend. Hugs...Pat
