Sorry for not being around more, I haven't been feeling quite up to snuff lately!
I started this card for the Sugar Bowl challenge last Wednesay, and I wasn't sure if I would get it done in time or not, but I finally finished it up this morning. I was a bit undecided on what kind of sentiment to use. This Sugar Nellie 'High School Student' stamp is great for back to school, but it's a bit late for that. On Friday though, I saw the freebie sentiment at Paper Makeup Stamps blog, and thought it would be perfect with her! The perfect message for a 13 year old grade 8 girl :)
I've actually split it up though, to fit my card better! That's the great thing about digi's... if it doesn't fit in your space, you can always resize!
I've paired her up with some papers from Jillibean soup called Watermelon Gazpacho. I've also used some buttons and ribbon from my endless stash :)
Her glasses received a generous coating of Diamond Glaze, as you can tell in full size photos :) In the close-up you can actually see that I did colour her eyes:
Sugar Bowl - sketch plus optional scraps
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Sing it! (Be Yourself, by Enrique Iglesias)
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenges - Buttons
Cupcake Craft - Back To School
