"Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worries on the doorstep... Just Direct Your Feet, to the
Sunny Side of the Street..."
Those lyrics were the inspiration for my project today, along with Mo's challenge of trying something new. The new for me is a center step card. I found the tutorial on You Tube by Frances Byrne for SplitCoast Stampers. The tutorial is fab and she is very easy to follow. I didn't know what I was missing, not trying one of these folds before - it was so fun! This is my CAS card, pretty much as clean and simple as I can do - LOL. I found, in my opinion, what is the perfect pink in copics over at Oozak, R81/83/85 - finally, perfect shades of pink for me :) I also added one more warm gray to my collection, W6, and am really pleased with the results of these new colors. The DP is also from Oozak, Dovecraft, Princess Fairytale by Katie Pertiet. The image is a newbie over at Mo's Digital Pencil too, "Singin in the rain". The star scallop border and cloud dies are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I used my cuttlebug to cut with my spellbinder circle nesties and used the die as a stencil to leave a white border around the image (I can't recall where I saw a tutorial about this, sorry :/). Also with the cuttlebug, I embossed the clouds and sentiment mat with the Tim Holtz Sizzix music folder, and embellished with Doodlebug twine and Bazzill buttons.
This one goes out to a BFF since gradeschool :)
