Hello and Happy Terrific Tuesday to you! Hope you are enjoying your day so far. It's time for another fun, weekly challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. This week we are having some fun with a fabulous "Color Splash" challenge. Please check it out and play along!
I knew what stamp set I wanted to use, but needed a little help putting it all together. I hopped on over to the Mojo Monday blog for some inspiration. How great is this sketch with all the layers and shapes? :)
I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Kimono Kids, for the main image. (Click HERE for another card with this set) I just think this little gal is adorable and I really like all the details on her kimono. So sweet!There is a LOT of sparkle on this one! I got a little carried away, haha! Total bling count: 21...23 if you include the tiny pearls in the little gal's hair. As if that wasn't enough, I "smooched" the textured background with some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I can't get enough of the Smooch. It's such an easy way to add some pizazz to any project. All of the supplies used are listed at the end of the post.
Finally, here is the dressed-up inside of the card, perfect for a handwritten note:
What do you think? I hope you will join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments with your color creation.

Thanks for stopping by to visit and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day today! :)
