I love to paper piece and this little beauty is designed for it. I started with a print small enough to fit on her shirt and stamped her once on the white paper and once on my patterned paper. Her shorts were cut out of the base cardstock. I colored her skin and hair and then glued on her clothes. Even though the plain paper looks blue, it's really purple in real life. This is my 'salute to Vivi card'. I don't do purple much, I leave that to her because she does it so well. I don't have a signature color like she does, but if I did, it wouldn't be purple (sorry, Vivi). I again did a shadow which I thought turned out very well. The flowers are my salute to Sheri who taught me a card is just not complete without a flower and although I have a gazillion flowers, I rarely use them.
This card marks the end of my tenure on the StampingScrapping Design Team. It's been an awesome ride, I love all the girls. We've had some head banging conversations and I've made some lifelong friends. So, ladies, thanks for the laughs and the inspiration. Mr. Excellent: thanks for the kiss, I will treasure it, see you in March 2013 for a fresh one and some kicka** BBQ.
