I just finished my card for this weeks post, so rather than wait until tomorrow I've decided to post her tonight. A friend at work (Lucy) asked me for a birthday card for a good friend of hers who enjoys riding her motorcycle. Hmmmm... wasn't sure if I had anything that would suit this, but then remembered I had Vienna and her Vespa, how can you go wrong with an Uptown girl right?
She was stamped on bella's bestest paper using black memento, then I coloured using both copics and pencils. I really did not like the way the ground area turned out, I almost tossed it, but I knew I had to finish this card tonight, so just carried on. Once I finished putting it all together I don't really even notice the ground area.
Paper is from MME - Nostalgia - don't you just love MME paper's?. I also used some light aqua and soft peach bazzill paper for my layers
She looked kind of bare in the corners so I used one of my new Memory Box Mariette Buckle, instead of using it as a ribbon slider, I punched a couple of circles using the co-ordinating papers and then finished off with a pearl in the middle. I also used a SU border punch for the open scallops on the aqua piece.
What's an Uptown girl without glitter - so added some glitter to her stripes on her dress as well as the bottom frill on her skirt. For the light on her Vespa I added some glossy accents.
Just a reminder for our challenge this friday - Christmas in July. It's a good way to kick start your holiday cards. Just email Emily your cad by thursday night for your card to show up on bloggabella and also a chance to win some bella bucks.
Thanks for stopping by, see you on Friday.
