Thank You Rosie

Thank You Rosie - Today I am very sad as this is the last day for there to be a design team for Michelle Perkett Studio. Michelle has decided to take her work in a different direction and therefore dissolving the challenge blog. This bitter-sweet last challenge is "Thank-you," as Michelle wanted to thank all of us for being part of her team.

You will still be able to get her breathtaking images in her Etsy shop here. I have used Rosie as I think that her pose is a curtsy. I love this image, but Michelle has so many lovely images, that I don't think I ever got around to coloring her before.

For my card, I used Welcome Baby from Big Lots DP.
My flowers are Posey Patch Heartfelt Creations. I love that they have flower stamps and Spellbinders that go together. This way you can stamp, then have a perfect cut on the same flower. It took my some time to figure out how to match the die with the stamped image, but now I have one of those I can't believe how dense I was not to figure it out earlier. I sponged over them with gold (centers) and Rose Viva Decor Inka-gold. I love this stuff. It gives a metallic look to things. My yellow Swirls were cut using my Cricut and Accent Essencels cartridge. I then shaped my flowers and added another Viva Decor product, my Icy white Pearl Pen to make the little pearls in the centers. I also used the pearl pen to make the pearl swirls. All of this took some time, but I am pleased with the results.

My ribbon is MS and it has my sentiment on it. My image is Rosie and I colored her with Copics, the gave a lot Stickles. You can never have to much bling!!

Thank you Michelle for all of your lovely images and for your friendship! I will miss all of this terribly, but am so thankful to have had this opportunity to have been on this incredable journey with you!
