Welcome - FCC61 & FS101

Welcome - From Courtney's Closet #61. Sweet little Courtney in her tutu was our inspiration this week. My image is a stamp from Inkadinkadoo. I stamped it with Stampibilities Brown and heat embossed. Then I used my aqua pen and painted SU creamy caramel, mellow moss and ballet blue. I mixed the ballet blue and the mellow moss to get the right color for my eggs. Then I just dipped my aqua pen alternately in the ballet blue and the moss green and painted my background.
For my frame I followed Beate's Folded Paper Frame video tutorial. Then I added an extra layer of framing with a 4 x 4 piece of my dp. Then I matted it all on another piece of my dp at 5.25 x 5.25.
I added buttons, twine and ribbon embellies and called it DONE!
This card was also entered into the Friday Sketchers Challenge this week.
