Ismaki challenge #11!!

....was a tough one for me!!! The ones with lots of layers and such seem more easy!! I really had a tough time with this one!! I don't know if it was the sketch itself or the fact that I had to use purple. When I make cards using colors that I don't love I find I hate them!! Plus this is like the first card I made without a white mat on the main image. It is throwing me off! This card was made for my daughters teacher who is leaving them now for a new job. So we made it a thank you, miss you and good luck card. Her favorite color is purple so Lauren had to have a purple card for her!! She wanted so many flowers but I let it stay at this much!! I think it is a little overdone for me but my 5 year old thinks more of everything is better!! I used a DCWV paper pack, hero arts flowers and these cool frosted dew drop things for the center of the flowers. (From Stampingbella) We also added stickles to Nellie's hair things and the hearts on her pockets. I sat Nellie on Tilda's bench. The sentiments are from Papertrey's mixed messages and the flourish stamp around the outside is from Autumn Leaves. Well that is it! Gotta go get dinner ready.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!!

Oh Kathy, know what you mean by using colours 'to order' it is so much nicer to be free and create with whatever you fancy... but... your card looks absolutely stunning and your daughters teacher will absolutely adore it!!

Off to find those message stamps.. they are fab!!
