Pink Polka Dot Princess

There is a new challenge blog out here in Blog World!! The 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog For their very first challenge - they chose PINK and DOTS. The other stipulation is to use an image that they sell in their store. Well, I just happen to have some Magnolia Images - which they sell in their store - so I was excited to be able to enter their very first challenge. This cute Magnolia came to me by way of an internet friend that I 'met' on one of the Magnolia Forums I recently joined. Isn't she adorable? This is one of those images that I will eventually own for my own. I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 pink pirouette card base and added designer paper from Stampin' Up! (Shades of Spring and Tea Party) I also added a bit of Pretty in Pink to highlight the design paper which was cut with a Martha Stewart Border punch. I added a piece of this gorgeous Guipure Lace that I got from Wild Orchid Crafts. My Maggie is colored with Prisma Color Pencils and cut with Labels 8 Nestibilities Die. I cut a size larger of the label 8 from the Tea Party DP to frame her. She is popped off the page and surrounded by these beautiful mulberry roses, also purchased from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added a bit of greenery using another Martha Stewart branch punch. I didn't add a sentiment, however, I may add a 'Happy Birthday' Sentiment to the inside of the card before I send it on to the troops overseas through Operation Write Home.

Thanks for stopping by the Paper Spa today and I hope you have found inspiration for your projects. Stop by again real soon.

Again I like your soft colouring & that matting with the Labels Nesties is great. Isn't it lovely when you MEET like-minded people (yourself included). It's what I really value about blogging.
