Let's Pretend with The Stamping Boutique

This is such a sweet image - a digital from The Stamping Boutique called The Magic of Pretend.  I actually cropped the image so it was only a circle - I wanted the edges to fade out - but the actual image is squared, in a frame.

She was colored with Copics - I wanted to keep this light and feminine, so I stuck with the softer tones and used the blender quite a bit to fade even the lightest out. 

I embossed the circle nestie then used scalloped circle.  Loved this pearl flourish.  I keep hoarding them - I need to get them out and use them ... Anyone use to watch Seinfeld?  "Is this card flourish-worthy?"

I am now out of my favorite-ist ribbon - Stampin Up Rose grosgrain ... need to restock - do they make it wider?  Will have to check that out, too.

Hope everyone is doing well - Lotsa lotsa reading for this nursing class, so I'm hoping it doesn't interfere with creativity.  They actually recommended at the orientation that if we don't have a relaxing hobby - GET ONE QUICK!  (can you really force a hobby?)

Let me know what you think of my card ... Love to hear your comments.

Collette your card is beautiful! I have been thinking about that image! She looks like she has a real mad on! LOL! Your coloring is awesome! (When I grow up I want to color you!) Good Luck on your classes and all the reading! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! No, I don't think that you can force a hobby! Happy Creating! Sara
