Happy Endings





Hi everyone and Happy Monday! :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is off to a great start. I'm still trying to get adjusted from springing forward an hour (for some reason, Daylight Savings Time always takes me a couple days to recover :) ).

For my card today, I decided to ink up this really cool castle I found hidden away in my stamp room over the weekend. I'm not sure who makes that stamp, but if you're interested, send me an e-mail and I'll find out. I inked the castle up with Memento black ink and stamped it four times onto PTI cardstock. I colored it with copics and cut the various layers out to give it some added dimension and pop. I also added purple glitter from my Sakura glitter pen to the flags. Next, I stamped Princess Charlotte and Knight Charlie from Whiff of Joy's new medieval collection onto PTI cardstock, colored them with copics, and cut them out. I added gold stickles to the princess's crown, a purple rhinestone, and brown rhinestones for buttons. I added some purple glitter accents to the knight as well.

I used last week's Mojo Monday Sketch for my layout. All cardstock is from SU (Chocolate Chip, Perfect Plum, and Pale Plum) and my design paper is from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. My sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Also, I wanted to remind you all, make sure you get your work submitted for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design's DT call, you only have a few more days to enter! :)

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)
