Paint Chips to good use

This card was a final ditch effort that turned into a marvel!  I found all of these ridiculous paint chips in my china cabinet drawer I have had for . . . well . . . two houses ago and never could make myself toss them.  I went to my USA stampers card class last week and the 5 card trade was for paint chip cards and here is what I made!

Started here . . .  I guess you could call this my DP!  (he he)


Then I gave my DP some dimension here!  The squares were punched out with my Stamp'n Up punch, the circles were all ready to punched on the chips and the flowers and yellow centers were punched with various tools of the trade I found as well.  All placed with a ruler and color coordinated pink and blue.

entered into Challenge: Anything Goes (make your own embellishments)
This is where it gets really good!  This is a Sitting Sugar Nellie stamp I think is super retro looking!  She is breezy and light hearted and ready to give that pale pink rose away to the one she is dreaming about!

I just had to add the fingernail polish! 
her dimple is thanks  to my .3 black pen
Medium:

Copic sketch E00,E11, R20, B22,24,26 and R20,R22,R24 for the socks, I know the hair has R19 for the auburn streaks and E50 for the light base but the other colors elude me.  (Sorry)

The inside has a sentiment from Fiscars that says "Inspired" and this card is for a little girl in my husbands Karate class that has started a campaign to support St. Judes childrens hospital.  I think anyone, that young, that naturally thinks of others deserves to be appreciated. 

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGH FOR THE DAY:

Put as much thought into making memories as possible and they'll come back to you!

Thank you for Visiting,
