Ava loves to celebrate

Hi everyone! I hope all you Mother's had a wonderful day yesterday!  It was a beautiful day here, couldn't of been any better. I did some gardening, enjoyed the sunshine, sat back with a glass of wine while hubby bbq'd, then last night I worked on my card for today.

I pulled out one of the newest Uptown girl images called Ava loves to celebrate.

I stamped her on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink then first coloured her with copics and then did all my shading with pencils.  I don't know why I shaded around her in a soft pink, I don't know what I was thinking, there isn't any pink in the paper???? oh well, I don't think it looks all that bad.
After cutting her down to size, I sponged some aqua die ink around the edges, then I layered her onto a piece of aqua c/s cut out using the spellbinder romantic rectangles - love the lacey edge on this die. DP is by MME - called sun kissed 'sweet' butterfly kisses - it's from 2009 - see I'm starting to dig into that big ole' stash.  Finished off with stitching around the image and then added lots of glitter.

Just a reminder for our challenge this week - it's a sketch challenge - all you have to do to participate is email Emily your card by thursday night for it to appear on Bloggabella on friday - also this gives you a chance to win $20 in bella bucks!

Thanks for coming by today, see you real soon....
