Happiness, truth, love.....

I loved this All Dressed Up image - happiness - when I first saw it, bought it and coloured it with ProMarkers then didn't know what to do with it!!

I cut it out with a Spellbinders die and then again I didn't know what to do with it!!

I was messing about doodling and decided to edge the image with blue ProMaker to give it a bit of contrast - AND again I didn't know what to do with it.

After much faffing and making other cards I spotted this paper in the Heartfelt paper stack from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs.  Hooray!!!  I finally had an idea that worked.  I've not been so indecisive since just before I started blogging about 5 months ago.

The paper is mounted onto red card stock and I've used some black self adhesive gems from Hobby Craft.

The only other thing I've used are some Doodlebug Sprinkles - hearts which  I bought from The Glitter Pot.

So it all turned out ok in the end
Andrea :)
