My Cards and Tags: Grateful Girl

This week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge is all about edges!  I made an edge using flowers and stitching to add a bit more oomph to my Grateful Girl card.

I started by drawing a girl's face and torso, which I colored with black and white stripes.  I set her aside and worked on the background.  I stamped a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper with Tim Holtz's Halftone and Rings set and colored the circles with different shades of Distress Ink.  I blended the colors together with white acrylic paint and cut out a trellis shape and a ring to add more dimension.

I assembled my components and added some number stamping to the background.  I cut some flowers out of a Simon Says Stamp hydrangea die and added them to my girl's hair and to the edge of my card.

I finished it off by adhering it to a piece of polka dot patterned paper and creating an edge with stitching, flowers, a bit of washi tape and some diagonal stripe paper.

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
