Little Girls and Fairies

Today's card is for the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge which is to use buttons and ribbon.  The challenge is right up my alley considering just about every card I make contains one or both of these items. 

I stamped the Sweet November image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock.  I then colored her with Copic markers. Do you like her pink hair?  The fact that I don't feel like I have to use a realistic hair color is one of the reasons I really like the Sweet November images. By the way, this stamp is just one of four that I won from a previous ATS Wednesday challenge.  Christine shipped my prize out the same day I let her know which stamps I wanted.  So give the challenge a try - you might win an awesome prize like I did.  But remember, you do have to use an image sold in the All That Scraps store to be eligible.

While I had my Basic Grey Kioshi pad I also made a layout featuring some this year's Easter photos. The hardest task for this layout was figuring out how to narrow down my choice of photos.  I had 75 in my folder after getting rid of the really bad ones!  They were all so good, especially those of my granddaughter hunting for eggs.  I know I am her grandmother and that automatically means I'm biased - but really - she just could not have been cuter that day!  Normally I don't do that many 2 page layouts but all the great photos made it necessary.
