SISC1 Maddie dressed in Purple

Today StampInsanity announced their first challenge along with releasing some new digi images (this is not one, lol). If you want a peak at the new images check them out here. You will want to see these flirty girlies because they are super cute and sexy at the same time :). I think Joszette is my favorite.

On to my card, I made this for StampInsanity Sketch Challenge 1. Wow it took me around 3 hours to make this card. I'm not sure if you can tell but I distressed the edges of the background DP as well as the white pieces of card stock with Basic Gray and Black ink. I also had to cut the image out because I stamped her too close to the edge to use my oval nestabilities. It wasn't that easy cutting around her hair with a fractured arm but I took my time and managed to do a decent job. I am loving the way this card turned out.

I decided to add the sentiment because I have a lot of birthdays coming up in the next couple month. Need to make sure I have plenty on hand. Most importantly I need to make sure I mail them, yeah shame on me I'm not very good at that. I'm sure my bloggy friends will help keep me on track.

Thanks for stopping by!
