Hello Life IS good

It rained all day yesterday so my solution was to make a sunny and warm card! 

The new line of stamps by Jane's doodles at SRM are so adorable and there is seriously no way to use them and not smile the whole time! I used this weeks mojo Monday sketch to get my shape going! { thank goodness for sketches, they are life savers!}

I stamped the images directly onto the newsprint paper and outlined them with a white paint pen, I really let myself "play" here and didn't worry too much about perfection in the tracing and the coloring which was done with the watercolor crayons from Stampin'up! that I have not used in.... shoot I can't even remember the last time I used them!

I added a few tiny splashes of glimmer mist and some stitching and of course my obsession  with sequins continues! I'm like an addict, I have always loved sequins and I hope this trend lasts for a long looooong time!  Those little round sparklies make me absolutely giddy! The sentiment is from SRM we've got your sticker Hello and is one of my all time favorites!

There is a half doily behind that swirl of yellow tulle trim and all the deliciously delicate embellishments clustered there. The twine is a striped seaweed and more stickers from Hello on a chipboard arrow from the crate paper oh darling collection.

I'm taking a much needed day off and plan to hit a few vintage shops, and have a yummy lunch! If I find anything fab-tastic  I will share photos....who am I kidding of course I will find some goodies...I won't stop until I do! :)

Happy creating, XOXO Shantaie
