Isn't this cute and Colleen's Throwdown Challenge

I took dd with me today when I got a manicure and pedicure as a reward for doing so well with the potty training. She has been dieing to have flowers on her toes so I let her do it. She picked out her own nail polish, told the technician what color flowers she wanted, and told her what color jewel she wanted in the middle. I'm so glad that I'm raising a girl who can speak her mind and advocate for herself--she won't even be 3 until next month!

The card is done using Colleen's sketch challenge as inspiration. This is my first Little Lady card and I had to put it together quickly between doing loads of laundry. In a way, I'm glad that I had to do each step in between doing other things because it forces me to slow down a little and plan things out in my head some more. The card base is Real Red. I stamped the On the Spot Background and ladybugs and sentiment on Shimmery White using Versamagic Red Magic and Midnight Black. The focal point is also edged with the Red Magic and then matted on Basic Black and Real Red. Each mat is 1/16th of an inch and can I tell you how much I love my Perfect Layers tool? I use it frequently and I love how it makes my layers and mats so *perfect*. I usually end up with something wonky when I eyeball it so I turn to my Perfect Layers most of the time. The strip behind the focal image is Basic Black and I put red eyelets in the corners with my Cropodile which is another tool that I love! I gave up on eyelets because pounding them is so noisy but now I can set them again since I've got a Cropodile :-)

Thanks for visiting!
