Shades of Blue

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you are looking forward to a great weekend.  I know I am.  I have been working on this card for a few days and finally got it finished.  This is another cute image from Sherri Baldy.  This is Two Clever Chole.  I thought she was just too cute.   I decided to do a center-step card this time and I used Glossy Accents on her glasses and Diamond Stickles on the flowers in her hair and on her dress.  Here is a close-up where you can see this.  It doesn't show up on the other picture.

Cardstock - CS and DP is Stamping Up
Stamps - Image is Sherri Baldy and Sentiment is Just Rite Stamps
Die Cuts - Spellbinder Decorative Labels 8 and Memory Box Corner Bow

Buttons - Basic Grey
Flower - from my stash
Everything Else - Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents

Hi, Gale! Your darling little girl could not be cuter with the little button in her hair-band, and the darling tied-around-the-ankle shoes to match her outfit. Sweet as can be. The red roses perfectly pop your gorgeous blues.
