Find your happy...

Hi guys!

I actually started this card on Sunday with the intention of entering it into the anything goes Garden Variety challenge over at TGF. Alas, I got busy and didn't finish it in time and there was no way I could make this work for the red, white and blue FFF challenge. Still, it seemed a shame not to finish it, especially since this was my first time inking up miss Charlotte Chic here.
I've had this little Ambrosia paper pad for a couple months now and that ikat print always stumped me. I kept trying to get it on a card but it just didn't seem to work well with any stamp that I pulled. That is until Charlotte came along... there was just something about her chic island girl look that was exactly what I needed to make this all come together. I love how the whole thing is very girly girl yet still kinda tropical and summer time looking. :)

Ok, well I've got a couple days off ahead of me and loads of things to cross off my to-do list before I can really sit back and relax. Wish me luck!

Hi Amy, I think your card is just adorable! I love how you have colored her and I really love the card you made for her. I am laughing to myself as I colored her up on Thursday and I have been trying to make peace with myself this whole week as I really don't like the card I made, but a friend gave me some very old papers and I really set on using them. lol...Hope you are having a great week. Hugs,Lisa
