She's gotta go!

The card I made today is for my friend's daughter. She is going to start potty training next week and I thought this little image from "gotta go" was the perfect image. The site is free and there are tons of images and I believe the artist draws for coloring books. I just resized it to fit the card.  This card fits three of this week's challenges on SCS. One is the featured stamper and CAKath was chosen. Her gallery at SCS is spectacular. I chose to case her card:  CAKath's Card I loved the way her card looked and thought that it would be a perfect layout to display this adorable image.

Notice what the card is sitting on? It is the directions and dance steps for the Pull-ups potty dance. That is why I chose to use the sentiment Dance.

The pink cs was run through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the bottom edge of the pink cs and layered it over the floral dp (sei). I used some ribbon that I got in a card making kit and tied a piece onto the main ribbon in a knot. Then placed a white button over top using glue dots. Adding the white button meets another SCS challenge using a button and the fact that I am sending this out in the morning makes it fit the free for all challenge- sending a card that you are thinking of someone or to make them feel better after an ailment. Since Sharron is going to be potty training her daughter, I thought this was the perfect thinking of you card for the situation.

For some reason my picture is sideways, but the floral dp is at the top. I
I did decorate the inside with some of the same dp and the remaining piece of pink cs that was run through the swiss dots folder. A piece of the same ribbon runs across the seam. A hand written sentiment fill the space now.

This photo shows the glittery gel pen a little better than the first. You can see it on the collar, trim on her sleves, belt, hair ties, I drew stripes on the cuff of the socks, and the soles of the shoes.  I also used a white gel pen to add highlights to her dress and shoes. The colored pencil was blended with baby oil and blending stumps.

I think this turned out absolutely adorable. It was so fun to tiptoe through Kathy's gallery and choose a card to case. I'm glad I did today's challenge. Super gallery Kathy!

Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to know what you think.
