Well, thanks to our wonderful Blogger, I missed another challenge deadline, but at least I can post the card now. I made this card for the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge which called for you to use the colors red, white, pink and kraft. I love this color combo, so I knew I had to enter this challenge! Unfortunately, Blogger was doing weird things on Sunday & Monday. First, it wouldn't let me post. Then it wouldn't let me add or make any layout changes. This one was new to me. When I went to the layout, there were no add a gadget buttons, no save button, and most of the gadgets were missing. I couldn't even edit the gadgets on this page or from the main page. Now it's not letting me change the alignment. Oh well, that will teach me to get my cards done earlier next time!
Anyhoo, I used Michelle Perkett's digi called Olive for this card. She was colored with colored pencils and blended with baby oil. The pail and shovel have Ranger Glossy Accents on them to add some more dimension. The little crocheted flower is from my stash. Olive is popped up with some foam adhesives.
The DP is made by The Paper Patch and is called White Summer Dots on Raspberry. The corrugated paper as well as the solid papers are also from my stash. The yummy white iridescent paper is from some blog candy I won from the Paper Temptress. The pearls are from Michael's and that gorgeous butterfly ribbon is more blog candy, but this is from a blogger in Australia! Isn't it just too darn cute?
Thought you might want to see Olive a bit closer. Her sunburn still doesn't show up as well as it does in person. You can see the Glossy Accents on this picture better. Some of the texture on this gorgeous white Paper Temptress paper shows up better. I probably should have included the bottom part of this digi showing the sand, but I already cut it off before I tried it on the card. That poor sand dollar probably wouldn't look so alone with the rest of the image.
