I Found Something!

I really wanted to have something (besides Disney photos) to share with you today, since I have been gone for so long! That posed a bit of a challenge though, since I haven't stamped in over a week now. Gasp!

I went through my photos, and found this little number that I hadn't posted yet! Yeah!
I made this card for a very close friend. It was her birthday on the second. I purchased this Huggybella stamp ages ago with her specifically in mind. You see, my friend Tara has this curly, wild, big hair. I have poker strait, fine hair....which up until fairly recently, was always very long. When I saw this stamp, my mind immediately went to Tara and I! I knew I had to have it!
Tara's favorite colour is blue...so the colour choice came together quickly. I used scalloped scissors for the scalloped edge along the bottom, and my new-ish rectangle nestabilities (I've had them for a while now...but not yet used them much...) to mat the main image.
I coloured the image with coloured pencils and blended it with OMS. The ribbon is generic white grosgrain from one of the chain craft stores (Michael's, JoAnn, or A.C. Moore). The kraft base is from SU! The buttons are from....?? I would have to run upstairs to find out. If you really need the info, leave me a comment and I will get back to you. LOL! I guess I am not feeling very ambitious right now.... The button at the top left of the card, and the dragonfly (see below....it's a bit hard to see) are from the same package of buttons.
I then used my piercing tool from SU! in order to punch the trail of the dragonfly. Once again...it is a bit difficult to see, but if you look at the close up above, you might be able to see what I am talking about.

Overall, this card came together quite quickly, and I am really happy with the results. I hope my friend is too!
