Make The Most...

Hi All!  I'm trying to slowly work my way through all the colored images that I have sitting by waiting to be used and I couldn't wait to use this image called Bliss from the Nouveau Girls line over at Some Odd Girl- I won the whole first release on the blog hop that Kristy held and I'm ashamed that I haven't gotten to them before now but the holidays have a way of hijacking creative plans :)  I just love how artsy these stamps are and the feel that they give to a project.  I of course colored her up with my Copics and I have to say I was pretty pleased with how her dress turned out- that many pleats can be intimidating (and it did take me longer than normal to color) but I definitely feel the result was worth the extra time!  I paired the gorgeous image with some paper from Websters Pages that I felt reflected the mood and a cardstock sticker from Glitz that seemed to work with the direction the card was taking.  Over on the Some Odd Girl blog they want you to 'Bling' your project up and as many of you have probably gathered from seeing my cards- I do love my bling and this pearl swirl seemed to be the perfect addition.  I hope you enjoy the finished product as much as I do :)

Funny how the color of her dress looks blue on the card and aqua on the smaller pic of her! Silly cameras! I hate that, when you are trying to capture it "just right". Sooooooooooooo wonderfully colored! love that sentiment with her! Thanks for being ODD with us for our blingy challenge and Congrats on winning these rubbas!
