Jellypark Friends New Beginnings Challenge

Well, it's Friday again. And it is the first Friday of the New Year. Can you believe it? 2014. This was the year I was supposed to retire. At least according to my Social Security reports that I get every year. I fooled them. I retired years ago.

However, I am not retired from making cards. Or being on design teams. And so, on this first Friday of 2014, I have another card for you. This time it is for the Jellypark Friends New Beginnings Challenge. (BTW, I keep typing beginnings with three n's instead of two. What is that all about?) I chose Girl with Sign, to which you can add your own message. I added a Create with TLC sentiment to my image.

I printed my image/sentiment on MICBC and colored it with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E31, E25
Dress/Bow/Shoes: B32, B34, B37, B39
Sign: C00, C0, C1

I selected DP from the Bo Bunny Zip-a-dee-doodle collection and Zutterized it. Then I paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I added some ribbon, metallic flowers, and Stampin' Up Candy Dots. My die cuts were made with Spellbinders Labels 4 and Grand Labels 4 dies.

That's it! Be sure to look at all the fab creations by my talented teammates today. There are also two newly-released images that will be fun to use--so check them out, too! We had so many fantastic entries in December; hope to see you all again this fortnight! 

I'll be back later with another post. Hope you have a great day!
