Paper Sundaes Challenge #5 - A Glittery Spring

Happy Sundae & Happy Valentine's Day!

This is week Five at Paper Sundaes and this week's challenge is "A Glittery Spring". Our sponsor this week is Paper Makeup. This week's winner will receive a collection of stamps valued at approx. $25.00. Be sure to join us for your chance to win! We can't wait to see your creations.

For my card, I have used the beautiful "Isabella". I have made my first attempt at coloring blonde hair - what do you think? Since most of my family are brunettes, I have a tendency to color hair various shades of brown and have been afraid to attempt blonde - it may also be that I have a larger selection of copics in the brown shades so far than I do in the yellows.

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #36, and this is how my card turned out -

I really enjoyed working with this sketch!

And here is the simple inside....

And a close-up.... Since this week's challenge is A Glittery Spring, I wanted to make sure you could see the Glamour Dust on Isabella's Wings. I LOVE this stuff! It is very fine and easy to use. With all that glitter, my card also fits the challenge over at Fussy & Fancy.

We would be delighted if you could play along with us this week. Be sure to visit the blogs of my talented co-designers and see what they have to share with you. The list is on my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Sundae!

Turns out I really enjoyed the movie hubby brought home last night - "The Time Traveller's Wife" - I wasn't sure I would as I read the book and often I don't care for the movie if I've read the book. I read more than I watch movies, but this one I think they did a great job of and I love how they cast it. And, hubby liked it too - his words were something like..."If this makes me cry...."

My general rule is read the book first, watch the movie only after reading the book. How about you? Have you seen the movie? Read the book? What did you think?

What I used:

stamps: Isabella from Paper Makeup, CTMH sentiment
inks: Petal - CTMH, Memento
papers: DCWV - Nana's Kids with glitter & embossing, bazill bling paper
embellishments: Basic Grey bling it, Prima flower, SU ribbon, Deco Art Glamour Dust on her wings


  1. great card - the soft spring colors are soo pretty!

  2. Love your card! I usually don't like the movie if I read the book.

  5. What a darling card! I wish it was spring already, lol!

    I always read the book first...but most of the time I end up not liking the movie. But The Devil Wears Prada, was actually a better movie. :)

  6. She is a darling fairy and your colored her beautifully! Thanks for playing at SSW!

  7. I love the image and your colouring is wonderful. I like the colour combo you chose. Purple is my favourite colour but I never think to use it in my layouts! I read Time Travellers Wife before I saw the movie and I like the book better! I usually always like the book better :) Hope you get a chance to read it!
