Big Smiles for this little lady...

Jumping up and down, up and down!!!!

It was such a nice surprise to wake to an e-mail from Nichole Heady and messages on my blog acknowledging that one of my cards received Honourable Mention.

Who doesn't get excited about receiving Honourable Mention??? Thank you Nichole for this honour. Little Lady is definitely going to see more ink in my future. It is such a versatile set as you can see from many of the guest star entries including honourable mention cards/projects.

I had so much fun with this card. As you know I ADORE DP...and I couldn't help but add this lovely lady to a blank spot on this DP. It was so fitting...almost like little lady DP. I wanted her to stand out so I added some dimension using the brads...and of course I chose a colour that would make her stand out on the background...after all she is the star of the card. Then I added the Faux Ribbon sentiment on layered circles and placed it over a Prima flower for a little "pop".
