The card I've made for you today features one of my all time FAVORITE Stampin' Up! sets called Nice & Easy Notes. This was one of my first SU sets and is still one I reach for regularly. I'm also entering this card on this week's A La Card Monkey weekly challenge. Be sure you check out their blog and the other entries.
Other retired items I used are Cameo Coral and Ruby Red cardstock and ink pads, as well as some retired Certainly Celery ribbon.
I watercolored this sweet little girl with my blender pens and a combination of ink pads, markers and watercolor pencils.
I added a little "bling" to her shoes with a couple of basic rhinestones. I think they're a tad big, but that's ok. I also colored three larger rhinestones with a green permanent marker and added them to the strip of ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed this first edition of Throwback Thursday!
Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
