Doin' the happy dance

That is what I think of when I look at Francine Flapper and let me tell ya, after two weeks of stay-cation I am doing the happy dance today after a full week of work. I cannot believe how tired I am! Seriously, I could just fall asleep at my laptop here. It's gonna be an early night for this sistah so I can get up early and have a nice long day at home...well, at home until 4 at least when we have to leave for an anniversary party. That reminds me, I gotta make a card!

Shannan's sketch this week was right up my alley...nice and square! Whenever I look at cards that are done with things mounted on angles, I love the interest and the way your eye wanders around the card, but this babe just cannot do it...I try, but my right brain takes over and makes me square everything up again. Maybe that would be a good challenge card for me...try something on an angle! Just do it!

Francine Flapper was stamped with memento black ink on Bella Paper, colored with copics and shaded with pencils and gamsol. Pencils were also used for the grass and some glitter was added for sparkle:

Copics used (sorry the list is not totally complete, i used some W's which I forgot to write down)
E0000, 000, 00, 11, 31, 33, 35
R20, RV0000, 00, 10, 11, E04
YR31, G20, 82

Now head on over to Em's blog because I've already had a peek and there are some WOWZER entries this week! Say hi too and you might just win some bucks! And speaking of BUCKS! I JUST noticed on the Stamping Bella website that there are new shipping rates....FREE shipping for all orders over $55....now won't that make winning some bella bucks go further!

Love everything about this card - love the colours - paper is a beauty - love the coordinating ribbon - your colouring technique is spectacular. Love it, love it, love it.
Any chance you remember the name of the paper that you used?
