Maturing

Hi and welcome!  I took some time last evening to make a card using the Art Impressions Maturing set.  I've been wanting to play along in their current challenge to use an Action Wobble and I only have a couple of days left, so I set aside some time to come up with this card, which I'm also linking to Seize the Birthday plus I used the sketch from Sunday Stamps.


I have the Birthday Fairy set from AI which is designed to use an Action Wobble with, but I wanted to use some NBUS so out came this fun set.  I stamped onto a panel of X-Press It cardstock and colored the image.  I also stamped the lady and cake onto a scrap and colored and fussy cut her out before popping her up on a Mini Action Wobble.  I adhered a thin strip of black cardstock down the right hand side and put it to one side while I worked on the card base.  

Quite by chance, the colors I'd used to color the image matched the Perfectly Plaid paper by Lawn Fawn so I adhered a strip down the right hand side of a white card base.  The stamped image was then popped up on foam tape.




This image just makes me smile!  Thanks for visiting!
