TDSC05 Lani arrives


Here's my take on The Digi Shack's challenge this week. Mandy gave us an awesome sketch; you can see it on The Digi Shack website. I chose Lani this week- she a beauty don't you think? I love her pretty little face.

I rarely make square cards, but it just seemed to fit this week's sketch. I colored Lani with markers this week for the Splitcoast color challenge (CC218- only orange, summer sun, old olive). The paper is from the new Basic Grey series called offbeat. I just love this pad- it has some fun and funky designs including some little birds. The orange rick rack was obtained from the sewing section at my local craft store (LCS). I actually purchased it to use with some SU! DSP which is on the list of 'things I want to make'. Is your list as long as mine?!!
I have had the flowers and the little acrylic brads (called 'scrapbook nails') in my stash for quite some time. The last little thing I did was to paper pierce in a semi-circle in the upper left corner. I used my coluzzle as a arc pattern and free-lanced the spacing between paper piercings.
