Life is GOOD!

The Sketch Challenge today on Paper Craft Planet is one that caught my eye and I didn't want to pass it up. Especially when I saw the card that Tammy at Stamp Happy made. It's simply gorgeous!

You'll notice that I changed the location of the sentiment since my image wasn't as narrow as the example. And then I used the wide sheer pink ribbon for the horizontal layer instead of paper. And speaking of paper, I've used the same Wild Raspberry K&Company designer paper pad that was used in my last post. It's just a different double-sided print. I love this paper and you'll probably be seeing more of it! :)

This "bubbly" Bella image was one that a stamping friend sent to me several months ago. I've been coloring with my new Copic markers and this is one of my "practice" images. I haven't quite figured out the correct shading and highlighting, but I'm working on it! I may *need* a few more colors yet! ;) I've used diamond Stickles on the bubbles, but they glared in my photo. Trust me, it really is pretty in real life.

I'm glad you blogged by and hope LIFE IS GOOD in your world today!

Smiles 2 U,
