Let's Meet at the Scrappers Corner - March

Hello Fellow Crafters,

It is time to start the new Challenge #10  at Meet at the Scrappers Corner Blog for the month of March. And the THEME: Anything Goes with a My Besties image/stamp/precolored project.

Please stop by and visit the BLOG to see who last Month's Winners are. And to check out this Months prizes and rules.

I hope you come join the fun and enter your cards. I can't wait to visit you.
The My Besties/Sherri Baldy digital Image I used is called Sweetie Pie and her dog which you can find here. She is so adorable. She reminds me of my Mom when I was growing up. She wouldn't do it all the time but I loved when she would tie a scarf around her head when working in the kitchen. I remember my Dad taking a picture of her in the kitchen barefoot. Sweet memories...don't you love them. 

I colored her with Spectrum Noir and a combination of Faber-Castell pencils for the hair, eyes and floor setting. I did color this a while back before I thought to start writing what Spectrum Noir #'s I used. I can tell you for this image on the Skin Tones I used TN2 and CR2. 
Card Recipe:

I hope I inspired you in some way. Happy Crafting. Until next time this Grannie is out.

I choose 2 Design Paper sheets that would fit my color palette.
I added a second layer of Edge hand punch by Martha Stewart

Circle Shape Card

I wanted to share pictures of how I put her together in this layout. I find if fun and love to share the how-to because I had to learn on my own before realizing there were a bunch of Youtube videos for us to learn I am sure there is one out there on this...but here goes.   I cut a separate Spellbinders Grand Nestabilites/Decorative Elements Circle out to place on the front cover over the Spellbinders Grand Nestabiliteis Circle shaped card. Apologies I forgot to take a picture of the circle card before I glued the Decorated on front.  

Here is more pictures: 
Picture of card closed with Decorative side on Front

Pieces to add to front of circle design
I did a masking process here. Stamps are 1 inch.

I hope I have inspired you to make a decorative circle card. I know I don't make them often enough but should they are so pretty.

Until next time this Grannie is out. Happy Crafting Blessings to you and yours...
