Meg's Sketch

My "invisible friend" Laura's daughter likes to make sketches! When Laura posted the latest "Meg creation", I new I had to join in the fun! Meg, this is for you!

My daughter needed a birthday card for a party this weekend. Since I know cats and cute girls are a hit with the 6 year old population, I chose this stamp from Stamping Bella!

After I stamped the words, I decided to bling the card up a little. I mean, you know me, I must have something sparkle on a card! So, after I decorated the hair bows, I moved on thinking it would be cute to bling up the "just be" sentiment. Uhhhh...NO! Let's just say it was not pretty and turned into a blurry set of words. It was almost as if you needed 3D glasses to read it! So, I decided to stamp it again, frame it and pop it up on dimensionals. Does it look intentional or like I tried to cover my mistake?!

Stamps: cuddlycat (, JustBe (TAC)
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, PTI White
Ink: Nick Bantock Lamp Black (Ranger), Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Copics (C1, 0, RV11, RV10, E00, E93, E47, E43, BG15)
Accessories: Silver Brads, Ribbon from Ms., Stickles

Meg would love to have you join in the fun! Check out Laura's blog for the details!

Thanks for looking!
