Urban Elzy ~ You Go Girl!

Once I saw this sporty little Elzybells stamp, I knew I had to have her! She's just *so* cute driving what I think looks like a VW Beetle. Lucky for me, last month I won an Elzy card contest at my favorite stamp store ~ Scatter Joy in Sx Falls, SD and the prize was a $10 gift certificate. It didn't take me long to spend that...and more! :)

My inspiration for the layout of this card is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #36. I love her sketches and try to participate as often as possible. It's so helpful to have a starting point in creating a card!

Did you notice I used those large brads I was bragging about in my last post? They are just a cinch to use with the handy-dandy Crop-A-Dile! The wild designer paper is by K&Company ~ Urban Rhapsody Points of Interest. I just bought a couple sheets of this new paper series, but they are all wonderful! You'll notice that I printed the "you go girl" sentiment on the computer and cut it out to fit inside the arrow on the paper. That's what you do when you don't have a stamp to fit the space! I thought about doing some random stitching on this, but decided it might be too much and just paper pierced the edges of the image instead.

I hope you're enjoying the weekend! It has finally warmed up here in Nebraska and the snow is melting today. Thank goodness! We're all very tired of winter and looking forward to SPRING! Have a Happy Day! Smiles, Pam :)

I bought this paper pad too, Pam. Love how you paired it with that stamp. I was working on something with her yesterday that didn't quite suit me so it's still sitting here. Awesome job!
