TPS#4 – Charming Day

Good Morning!  Have you recovered from daylight saving time?  I think I oversleep every year after the change.  I’ve heard many people say “we should just do away with it.”  I think I might agree!

So today I have a card for the latest The Paper Shelter challenge.  The challenge was to add a charm to your project and/or give it a St. Patrick’s Day twist.  Since I actually picked up some charms when I was in NYC the other week, adding a charm was the perfect way to go.

I decided to use Sophie in the Country — she’s so cute!  I colored her up, cut her out with Labels 8 and then sponged grass & sky around her.  Now, did you ever go rolling through the grass or down a hill as a kid (or maybe you still do it)?  Sophie was definitely rolling in the grass, as she has some stains on her shirt and feet — in other words, I thought I could sponge closely without getting the ink on her, but I was wrong.  LOL!  I’ve used this layout before, actually with my first The Paper Shelter card.  It’s a great way to feature some designer paper.  I thought Sophie might be thinking about someone she’s missing, so I added a “Miss You” sentiment, as well as some butterflies and pearls.  My charm is on my bow.

  1. Wow! What a gorgeous creation! Lovely coloring and layout. The grass “stains” combined with your “rolling in the grass” explanation…PURE GENIUS…LOL!! You had me going ;D I really thought you had added grass stains on purpose. Either way, it's still gorgeous! Thanks for joining the challenge this week at The Paper Shelter. Hugz, Cheryl
