Papertake Weekly - Get in Shape!

Updated to post that DORA is the winner of the Lili of the Valley voucher! CONGRATS Dora! Please  contact Dawny to claim your prize! Thanks again to everyone for joining us in our celebration!!

Oh wow, could I ever follow the advise of this weeks challenge!! LMBO! I NEED to get in shape. But ok...who wouldn't rather spend the time getting inky and having fun??!! I mean, really! LOL! I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that helped us celebrate Papertake Weekly's  4th birthday last week! We had an awesome turnout for the hop and we truly appreciate your support! We wouldn't be here if it weren't for you! So THANK YOU!!!  Now it's time to move on to the new challenge this week, and Dawny has asked us to "get in shape" by using three different shapes on your card. Your card base can count as one.  I  used more than three, but that's ok as long as you have at least three. Here's what I came up with

I have been wanting to color up this cutie since I got her forever ago! Of course I would use it for a Birthday card for one of my most favorite person in the whole world. :)  She's Angelina's Balloons from Mo's Digital Pencil. I printed her onto Cyrogenic White paper from The Paper Temptress, and then colored her with Copic markers. Clothes and balloons - E97, 99, and 17;  skin - E11, 01, 00;  hair - Y21 and E33;  and T2, 4, and blender pen for the bloomers and socks.  For her cheeks, I used pink chalks after I was done coloring.  She's cut out with oval Nesties (one of my shapes) using the out of the box technique for the balloons.  I covered the balloons with some glossy accents and then sprinkled some fine glitter on them while they were wet.

The doily behind her is from a Cheery Lynn Designs doily die (another one of my shapes), then I added a rectangle panel that is bordered by a Martha Stewart punch, and added  the banner (Whimsy Stamps) up in the right corner (two more shapes).  See that flower? That was made with my newest Cricut cartridge The Flower Shoppe. I buy all my Cricut cartridges from Hallmark Scrapbook. They have the best prices and customer service, period!  I can tell I'm really going to love this cartridge and use it a lot! The leaves are from another Martha Stewart punch.

Oh man....looking at this close up shows how bad my eyes are getting! LOL!  The papers I used are VERY VERY old Daisy D's that I've had in my stash for probably four or more years. I used Bazzill cardstock as well as some kraft. The sentiment was computer generated and then just cut out and popped up.

So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the amazing creatons by my teamies, and then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hug!
