Sasha Obama's Inauguration Day outfit was so cute.....

....I had to make a card using pink and orange.

I thought both girls looked stunning, but Sasha is just so sweet. With all the February birthdays, I knew if I made a card for a female, it would go to someone special. I can't say who it's for, just in case they read my blog (not likely, though). The base is white and then I used some SU designer paper from last year (gasp!)and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Circles & Dots embossing folder. I discovered this only has benefits if you do not then cover up almost the entire card front! I then used Labels 2 from Nestabilities and used the negative bits to make a frame so that it looks like Hanna is inside a window....window shopping....get it!! Sorry, too much coffee already. The coloured cardstock is Pixie Pink and Only Orange. I did some paper piecing on three the bags she's carrying. There's definitely a lot of different things going on with this card. I coloured the image with Copic markers. As a sidebar, I'm going to attend a class taught, by Nicky, at Stamping Bella on February 25th. Any ladies in the Toronto area should check out the calendar to read about it and other classes, too. To complete the card, I added Primas with centres by Maya Road flowers and little, bitty button brads and some hot pink dotted ribbon. Okay, that's my card for this morning. I'm feeling crafty so maybe I'll do another later today as I have to be at home awaiting delivery of a new coffee pot.
