What are all my firsts?
It is my first "Cutesy" card. I will make more. (smile)
It is my first card with a Digi Image: Have you been putting it off? It was not nearly as difficult as I made it out to be. (do you ever make things more difficult than they really are?)
Besties' Site, this adorable freebie "Tiffany and Squeek" was offered so that everyone could participate in her weekly challenge.
Squeek reminds me of the Blue Bird Of Happiness - they are so sweet together.
It is my second time for using Copic Markers in this manner. Is there a trick to staying in the lines? Or is it my fumble fingers which don't cooperate?
Another first- Sneak peek for the sentiments.
They are part of the new Sparkle N Sprinkle Spring Floral #490 set designed by Beccy Muir.
Sparkle embossing powder and Copic markers also from SNS.
The Sparkle EP is used on the dryer sheet, blue panel, and Decorative Labels Eight in order to provide depth to the distress color, and some sparkle, too, of course.
Another first - One blogger mentioned she die cut used dryer sheets for her flowers.
I tried it with Spellbinders dies, but they would not cut through the dryer sheet.
So I stitched the dryer sheet between the lace and blue panel to add some body and fru fru.
I will use more dryer sheets in cardmaking. :-)
Thanks for popping by to share my day of "firsts".
