None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Live a colorful life ...

Art is your personal diary where you may color your thoughts and emotions on a page. ~Sara, Los Cerros Middle School, 1999

Good morning!
Just a reminder that there is still time to play along with at Through the Craft Room Door.
Our Sponsor this week is Craft Sentiments with a prize of 3 images from their store!


Today I am sharing with you the details of the card I made. The image is colored with alcohol markers, fussy cut and added to the card base with foam pieces. Pearl Smooch was added to the flower to give it a touch of a shimmer and Gold Smooch was used on her head band along with the rhinestones. 
Supplies for 5 x 7 card

Cara, what a clever design having Scilla sitting on the embossed pines! She really does belong there. I really like the colors on her as well. Her orange-red hair and green dress remind me of the the princess in the Disney movie Brave. May you have a wonderful Friday and some fun plans ahead for the weekend. Hugs.
