Be Marvelous

I'm taking part in an image swap with some of my SBS2 sisters. I got some great images yesterday from Flossie, and I just had to put a card together! She sent me both the lady in the hat AND the "be marvelous" sentiment.


I used colored pencils and gamsol for the coloring. I cut the circles with my Coluzzle, and the scallop was made using Mini Mongrams and my Cricut. I paper pierced each scallop, but you can't see that too well. The patterned paper card front is ticket-punched DCWV Pocket Full of Posies, and the ribbon is American Crafts. I added three brads to the ribbon. I know exactly WHO I'm sending this card to! It's perfect for her!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love this card! I am trying to get into stamping really, really bad, but I have a question-What is this gamsol that everyone uses??

Cute card :) Thanks for the comment...she so enabled, she twisted my arm and everything LOL. When you get yours make sure you have sharp scissors, that thing was so hard to open and not cut myself...oh and the directions are folded up at the bottom :)
