Strut Your Stuff

Hi everyone! Happy Friday to us all! I have a cute card to share with you today and I had so much fun color it! this is one of the newest images by Lynne Stansbery. It was just release last weekend. It's called Strut Your Stuff, and I think it's just about the cutest image ever.

I used Copic markers to color it.  I did some of my usual crooked stitching around the edge and I'm wishing now I'd left that off!  I just need to practice on scrap papers and quit doing it on my cards until I can stitch straight!

I wanted the black ruffles to still look ruffley after coloring them in black, so I used a clear glitter pen to trace over the ruffles and I really like how it turned out.  Even better than I expected!  I also used the pen on the necklace  The sentiment comes with the image and there's another one as well!

You still have time to play in Squigglefly's blog challenge!

I love this new image-gotta run over to the store and get her for myself! I think your stitching is awesome-my stitching is never straight either
(but I think it adds character)!!!
Have a great day, Holly! and give those pups a pat for me-ok?
