CYAO10 - Lil Shirley Holmes

This week I had fun with CYAO10 at Paper Secrets.

Use 3 of the following products/techniques:
use twine
spring colors
card stock on the front of your card 

I didn't want to use a tree and clothesline, so I decided to use this cute Shirley Holmes image from Scrapbook Stamp Society and a twine-based "trail" for her to follow.

From the list, I used, clouds, markers, twine, mist (in the dirt as texture) and cardstock on the front of the card. I might even have used spring colors, making it my first 6/6 card!

The other challenges I am also entering this one in are:
Corrosive Challenge #147 - hit the bottle (use something from a bottle - glimmermist and distress stain)
Pile it On Challenge #16 - Pop it up - Shirley Holmes is popped up :)
Alphabet Challenge blog - E is for Embroidery (or stitching!)
Fairy Fun Fridays - Anything goes
Joyful Stamper - Anything goes
Delightful Challenges - stitching
Creative Belli Blog Challenge #141 - children

  3. I saw this stamp on the Scrapbook Stamp Society page and wondered how someone would use it. You really did a good job. I never would have thought of putting that stamp & sentiment together.
