2 weeks ago Jackie challenged us all to do some quilting on our cards. I've done a few quilted cards previously, and enjoyed them...but decided to kinda cheat and just do strips for this card (you know...limited time and all.) However, I LOVE this card...the colors are just so bright and cheery, and this little chica is adorable!!!Hola Chica is the April Stamp of the Month. She won't be released for public purchase until May1st (just in time for Cinco de Mayo!) but you can get her during April when you sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club before the end of this month!
I used lots of new In Colors, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. These are such wonderfully vibrant colors, I thought they would go well with this new little south of the border Sophia. And the greeting? Well, I have a wonderful friend who I always say "Hola Chica" to on the phone - and am heading down to see her tomorrow - can't wait!!!
I stole Jessie's circular clip with some ribbon idea...and added the felt flowers to liven it up, and otherwise it was just lots of piercing. Overall it was actually a pretty quick card! Be sure to check out the other Prettie Blogs to see what everyone else came up with for this challenge - I've finally updated my list over to the right so you can follow those links.
Happy Hump Day!
