LuLu Birthday Wishes

About a month ago I started to create a card for an assignment. Got the entire thing assembled and then realized that the paper I'd chosen, which I adore, (Cosmo Cricket paper pack from Taylored Expressions) just didn't work with my image. So I put the entire piece aside and there it sat until one evening last week when the light bulb went on (those light bulb moments don't happen very often! LOL!) and I remembered that I had purchased a few of these darling LuLu stamps, from Stamping Bella, after our Stamping Around VT event that would be perfect with the paper and layout. And this card was born! I love these images! Aren't they just adorable? I can't believe this cutie sat in my closet for so many months without seeing ink! My LuLu, named Harriett, was colored with Copic markers and her hair, stockings, and shoes also got a layer of glaze...isn't that stuff amazing? Love it! (You can see the shine in the first photo). I then added a birthday sentiment from PTI to the bottom of my die cut Harriett and attached her with foam tape to the front of my already completed card....now that was easy! Anyone ever create a card base without an image, just to have on hand when the perfect image emerges? That might be a time saving way to create a quick card when needed! Enjoy your Tuesday!!
