Emma Swinging...


WOO HOO...I am at 140!!  The number 40 seems to be popping up a lot in my life lately.  Hmmm...good thing I  not a gambling lady. lol  Stay tuned for some exciting news to come. (teeheehee)

I must have marbles for brains. lol  I created this card as my last card as a GDT for Whimsy Stamps and forgot to post it on Monday.  I was so happy to be an official team member that I didn't schedule this cutie for posting.  I used a Whimsy Stamp original called "Emma Swinging," to create my card. 

Here's my card...

Emma Swinging

I love the purple colors I used to create this card.  I started out with SU cardstock and layered on a shade darker purple cardstock.  I stitched some dp from Bo Bunny "Ambrosia" 6x6 paper pack.  I digitally paperpieced her dress and jacket.  I used digital paper from Whimsy Stamps called Violet Spring papers.  I merged this cutie with a wildflowers background.  I used a MS lace punch and Cheery Lynn's flourish diecut.  The flowers were from my stash and added brads and Stickles to them.  You can't really see it but behind the flourish diecut adn holding up the twine is a real piece of wood.  It is a stick I found in the yard.
