Wonder and Joy


This is my 1st attempt at an "out of the box" technique using Labels 1 nestie. There is surely room for improvement and I have a couple more stamped and ready to color and cut so hopefully there will be improvement. I had so much fun making this card - thanks to my friend Pat who came over the other day and we did a little stamping together. I colored my little girl with copic markers, shaded the sky and shelf with a sponge and a q-tip in the tight spots. Used my ek success punch for the top border. I love using flowers, buttons and scrappers floss so I thought this would make this card complete. The saying is from a hostess set from Serendipity 10 but it was again perfect for this card. I think this will go to dear granddaughter this week.
