Sugar and Spice

Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of….and of course for some of them it’s also snakes and snails and puppy dog tails lol.

I am so excited to be able to show you this card, not just because I am totally surprised at managing to finish just in time, but because this was a collaboration card. My dd came to me last night wanting me to print up an image for her to color. When I asked her what she wanted, she said a teddy bear. Well that worked just fab for me because I have wanted to get a card done for the CDAC Progressive Challenge done and the theme is "It's all about the Bears". My dd picked the adorable image by Bugaboo to do. So I told her that if she colored it, I would make a card with it. So she colored it and picked out all the different papers for it while I looked for a layout to do with it. And this is what we came up with.

She colored it with Prisma Scholar, Laurentian and Crayola pencil crayons. Then I went over it with oms and did a bit of shading. She colored the halo with gold metallic gel pen and the wings were done with gold flecked stickles. She traced around the stars also with the gold metallic pen. I used my SU Pastels to make a light blue "sky" background around our Teddy.

Didn’t she do a fabulous job? I am so proud of her. The red textured cs is by Recolletions, the polkadot dp is from SU, the pink embossed paper is by Canson Expressions (from our local dollar store): Cotton Candy - Rosebud and the pink cs used for the sentiment is from SU. The sentiment is from Nana Vic's.

The layout is a sketch for Guylou's current challenge. Hopefully you'll check out their challenge and all the fabulous creations her DT has put together. This is the sketch I followed.

There is still a few hours to get in on the CDAC Progressive challenge and another 3 days to get in on Guylou's challenge.

What a cool way to make a card, by collaborating with your daughter. I think you guys did a great job! This card is really, really cute. Of course, I love all of the pink (since pink is the best color in the whole wide world, you know).
