Beach Baby

Today, I am showcasing an adorable image from SMC's sponsor this week: The Stamping Boutique. They have tons to choose from over there so be sure to check them out and enter the SMC challenge for your chance to win!

Beach Baby With Hat

Image Close-Up

When I got this image I was both excited and terrified! I love it, but I have never colored in something so detailed and I wasn't sure I was gonna be able to do this justice. I don't think it turned out too bad, although I'm still not certain about the sun. This took me quite some time to color...I'm a bit of a slow colorer, lol...but I quite enjoyed it!

After I completed the front of this card I decided it would make a cool easel card, so I decided to turn it into one. I have to say, I'm really lovin the pink, black, and white together; so I think I'm gonna have to make a card with those colors soon!

Here is the inside of the card using my first computer generated sentiment, yay! As usual I cut the paper the size I wanted before thinking of doing this, but I found a solution...one everyone already knows about, I'm sure. I printed this off on test paper then aligned my small paper up with where i wanted it printed and taped the two together and printed...so easy, why did I not think of that before???

Here are the colors I used. Well, most of them, I cannot seem to find one of my blues B32, but other than that they should all be there. Well, that's it for me today, I will also be entering this into some challenges...one of which is a new challenge they have at The Stamping Boutique...It's a month long challenge and all you have to do is use a TSB image and the random will will receive 5 free images. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed my card and don't forget you still have a couple more days to enter at SMC for a chance to win some of these beauties!

Have a great day!
