Purple and Green

Since I love Purple, this is really not too bad a mistake but I actually made this for the Whiff of Joy challenge 0nly...I forgot to use a WOJ stamp! Guess this means more purple work to be done...Yeah!!!

So unto the mistake. I used another one of those expensive $store frames for this encouragement picture for a collegue of my DH.
I used a Magnolia image that Claudia Rosa sent me and used my Prismacolored Pencils for coloring. I just love the way you can shade and blend using pencils. I also added a Yorkie puppy stamp which I also colored pencils.
I placed the girl on dimensionals attached to the dollie. The dog was attached without dimensionals. The images were both attached to a 3.5 inch dollie. I distressed the dollie with frayed burlap distress ink. The BG paper is from the Christmas Glitter stack.

I used a strip of leftover paper to create a ribbon and then added 2 Prima flowers to the corner. In the other corner I embossed a stamp from Stitched Exotics from SU. I attached the Imagine, achieve, dream, and become sentiment on the top mat. I embossed this rectangle using the nestibilities.
Well it is once chilly day here -25C. I am so glad that I am home next to my gorgeous fireplace. I am so enjoying retirement....everybody left for work this am bundled up for the cold and I am still in my cosy housecoat. Have a great day.
